FO: Something Really Red!
The Pattern: "Something Red" by Wendy Bernard
The Yarn: Diana Collection by Yarns Northwest; color 04

This is the third time I've made this sweater! I guess you could say I love this pattern. I modified the sleeves, however. Rather than the elbow length sleeve, I made long sleeves. I want this sweater to be a winter sweater. It's cold in the Pacific Northwest now! I love this RED sweater better than the two previous! It's a blue red, which the photo doesn't show. (Red can be finicky in photos!)

PS: absolutely no seaming whatsoever...the pattern is error-free...and a very easy top-down design! I highly recommend this pattern! If you are a Raveler, this sweater is in 271 other knitter's notebooks! You should see the beautiful work by these other knitters! And lots of modifications, too!



This is the model sweater, which you may prefer for you!

I'm making a "ChicKami" (to wear with it) with the leftover yarn.

There is a really cool pattern I found on Ravelry...but the downloadable PDF is available at Chic Knits.

I have 9 skeins (left over from the cardigan) which is more than enough for the ChicKami. I'm making the wide straps version...and also inserting a triangles motif in the middle of the bustline. It's a modification that I saw by Theresa on Ravelry!



Here is a photo of Theresa's modification. I sent away for the book just to get this "triangles" lace pattern!

That is a great sweater and I love the color! I bet you look really great in red. That cami pattern looks like a nice one. I really like that modification.
