My Fall Wardrobe Wishlist

I have found the following jumpers on Ravelry which I really want to knit for fall and winter this year:

This is the one that I am casting on presently, but with different sizes of wool for more texture. In fact, one is a cotton yarn and the other is Merino. I am using Katia Mississipi 3 and DiVe Autunno, my absolute favorite yarn in the whole wide world. It is a lofty single full of bounce to the ounce. I plan to knit with size 4 and size 6 needles. As the pattern is from Trove, it requires re-formatting to read it properly, which I have done, so I will share it here. All text came from Trove. Here is the link:|||l-decade=195

Here is my formatting:
