Hanne Falkenberg - Danish knitwear designer

I am totally in love with Hanne Falkenberg and her knitwear designs; sadly her designs seem to be all in garter stitch (hand knitting). 

The one that appeals particularly is 'Dacapo'.  It appears to be made up from modular pieces. See http://www.cucumberpatch.co.uk/dacapo.htm (the back of this jacket is particularly attractive).

I am in the process of designing my own knitting machine version, using Designaknit8.  So far I have created this layout; it's not easy to explain but each piece is named so hopefully I will know where each piece goes when I get around to creating and constructing it.

I still haven't decided on the stitch pattern - maybe tuck, or 1x1 Birdseye slip ...  any suggestions?

The other design I much admire is Diva, see http://www.cucumberpatch.co.uk/diva.htm
