My own red sweater, and a student's
Worn here by my neighbor, Eve, is a new deep rose sweater, my own design in Cascade's Cloud 9, a 50/50 merino/angora in a worsted weight. I chose a deep rose red to match the Russian shawl. Because this is a flattering sweater, I'm trying to work the pattern out in multiple sizes.
The second sweater, from an Annabel Fox design published long ago in VK, is by my student, Marsheila, who substituted Cascade 220 for a long-discontinued yarn, chosing a great red with black collar and cuffs It's ideal for a first sweater, in garter stitch, and she did a superb job on it.
