I am a knitter and also fascinated by clothes recon.  I've seen lots of fun-fur cuffs and collars attached to jean jackets, but that's not really my taste.  Also seen a couple of knitting/recon patterns in knit.1 magazine, like a sweatshirt with a knitted yoke and a button down top with crocheted sleeves that
are a bit more my style. 

Anyone know of other knitting/recon combo projects similar to these?

The first thing I thought of was knitty's Surf & Turf: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer03/PATTsurf.html  Grin
Otherwise, I've seen people wearing some recons that look like sweaters pieced together with bits of sweatshirts...not just the yoke but pieces of the body and sleeves. I wish I could be more helpful, but I couldn't find any pictures online of the sweatshirt I saw...

The skirt is fun!   Grin 

The sweatshirt sounds interesting - I'll look around to see if I find anything like it.  Thanks for the ideas.

As a follow up, I have since seen a fun skirt in the book "Second-Time Cool: The Art of Chopping Up a Sweater" that starts with a felted old sweater body as the main part of the skirt.  Then, to make the skirt longer, the pattern picks up stitches around the bottom and makes a scalloped hem.
