More Sweater-Along Deliberations

OK, I have a few more things for my sweater-along cooking.  In general, I'm looking to make a boat-neck made in the round from the top down, ideally with set-in sleeves.  Not that that exists, it might have to be slapped together from a few models. 

Option 3
I really like this sweater, but I don't know if I'm feeling collared right now. Also, I'll have to order the yarn (although, currently it's leaning towards that anyway).

Option 4
I'm not in the mood for a v-neck, but otherwise this pattern is great. It's a top-down knit knit the round, and has really cool sleeves that puff at the bottom.  Maybe I'll use it as a skeleton and adjust the neckline. Although, if the neckline goes, the cuffs will need to be adjusted too.

I just really like the collar on this one, but I think the middle will be too bulky on me. 

Under Consideration ....

I can also use a turtle neck to go with jeans for the long, cold winter. This one is knitted in the round, but from the bottom up. To make sure my sweaters are long enough, I use a provisional cast on, so I can go back at the end and lengthen it if needed.

For Later ....
This is more of a spring sweater for me, I'm considering making it in either pea soup or turquoise.

It's bottom up, but otherwise seems to meet your needs: Buckwheat by Vera Valimaki. Good luck with your search for the perfect sweater to knit.
