A casual winter wardrobe for a young woman at University is greatly enhanced by a couple of knit tops to wear with jeans. My daughter rather liked my repetitions of V8634, and thought it might look good on her too. I made it in a tunic length so that she can wear it with leggings as well.
She knit the fancy cable scarf herself - Jo Sharp Knit 8, in Alpaca Silk Georgette in Peony, knit together with SohoSummerDK cotton in Fog, which just happens to blend in beautifully with the grey marle knit.
Grey looking so smart with her new pink coat, I then made her a BurdaStyle 01-2013-119 in the same grey marle knit, with a doubled rolled edge neck, using black as the under layer. She likes this one too.
I am on a roll with knit sewing at the moment, but there is a fancy wool coat lurking behind all this quick easy sewing, I might be missing in action for a while.
