I like chevron panels down the front and I love the texture of the overall sweater, but I'm worried that knitting a worsted weight sweater might be slightly too bulky for my body type? I think this is just lingering doubt from last winter, but bulky knits can make you look bulky - and I don't need a whole lot of help in that department!!

Image copyright lilaluIt wouldn't be a 5... post without me reiterating my love of striped sweaters and Seashore by Isabel Kraemer is another one I just love. Knit out of a fingering weight yarn I think this has the potential to be both comfortable and flattering to my body type. I would probably knit it out a combination of grey yarns - because grey goes with everything! - and I may eliminate the button detailing on the back of the neck.
Image copyright Judy BrienThe Cosi sweater by Judy Brien is a showstopper. I'm not entirely sure I could get away with something this structural, but the fit on the model is glorious - even if the reverse stockinette stitch detail on the sleeve is a little distracting in my opinion. This is something I can see Cosima from Orphan Black totally rocking - in a regal purple shade, but I have some way to go until I reach such a level of cool! (Also Cosi is totally short for Cosima, right!? Coincidence, I think not!)
Image copyright Amy HerzogLast but by no means least is the Pescadero cardigan by Amy Herzog. I think this would be perfect over a checked shirt in the autumn - the collar peeking over the top. I love the grey-green shade it's been knit up in - seriously, we need more neutrals like grey - I can't get enough of it!
Now I just need to put some more work into my Pomme de Pin cardigan so I can justify casting on another big project... D'you have any good sweater recommendations? (because I clearly need to feed my ravelry queue...)
