Opus 1300. Classic, 1950s-60s-style, hip-length, long-sleeved, raglan cardigan with crew neck. Knitted flat from the top down, with a textured, beaded diamond pattern around bottom half of body and ends of sleeves. Cuff and hem ribbing with contrast edge, and traditional buttoned front. This is a fully-written, original pattern inspired by hand-knitted cardigans remembered from the 50s and 60s, i.e. not an updated vintage pattern. The clear glass beads and clear plastic buttons are part of that vintage look. (More details here)

Opus 1701. A conventional sock developed from the artwork pattern, Untitled 1700, and intended to exploit the colours and quality of Wollmeise sock yarn. The leg resembles both a twisted flower stalk and the gleaming hank of yarn, and the picot top edge is reminiscent of the broken-off top of the stalk. Optional beading around the top gives a dewdrop effect. This is a plantlike design, so the spirals are not mirrored. There are two separate, fully-written patterns for knitting cuff-down andtoe-up, and both patterns include options to knit the sock with a smallmedium or large number of sts per row. You can further adjust the width of the sock by using one of two needle sizes. That gives a total of 2 styles, 2 sock-knitting methods and 5 width-adjustments. Foot length is infinitely adjustable.
