Here is a pair of separates that I made at different times. The top is of an improvised pattern I made, using a mock cable stitch from Knitting on the Edge. The sweater was going to be part of a Silent Hill cosplay if Cheryl, but I still haven't gotten around to making the jumper.
The skirt is a mock pleated affair with the pattern taken from The Bleu Door. I rather like the yarn I used, and it has appeared in several projects.
