Interesting knit top styles

I really like the quality knit tops in the mid/high end RTW stores, and am able to sometimes pick up viscose knits (rayon) which I could use in the same sorts of styles. I have a serger and a coverhem machine, and yet I seem to not have access to the same range of interesting knit top patterns as the RTW designs. Sadly I am not clever enough to work out how to emulate these designs myself.

I wear a lot of the knit tops I make, and are a way of cheering up my frankly boring suits so I can see its worth while getting some more interesting top patterns. I probably do need a gallop though my existing large pattern stash to see what I can find.

Here are some examples of the sort of thing I mean.

What great styles - I too, would love to be able to work out how they are constructed. Hopefully your pattern stash comes up trumps with some inspiration!

Very nice. Perhaps pattern drafting is your next endeavour.

Very nice. The drape on the bottom one might be able to be emulated (at least partially) using the Jalie scarf neck top perhaps.
Love all of them. I'd like to be able to emulate some of those too.

I especially like the top one. Oh the things you can do with stripes!

I to love that first top. I'm not great at figuring out how to do these pattern changes but these are so cool that they might be worth the effort.
