I just finished a series of three black cotton reconstructed sweaters. Sometimes it's very satisfying to work in all one color and just focus on shapes and textures.
On the left is a long swing sweater with a single vintage button closure. The center sweater is sculpted and asymmetrical with large floppy extra "leaves" and a pod-like pocket on one side. Third is a cardigan with high waist, flared sleeves and and a ruffly hem.
