But now that I have finished this cardigan, Something Red has a new, entirely different meaning.
So does the whole "cardigan" thing.
Normally, I wouldn't grab a cardigan, unless, of course, it is in a fine gauge yarn that could be tied around the neck to add some sass, (or is a bit shrunken). You know, something you could wear with a matching little shell. Or with an Audrey Hepburn face and hair and pants and shoes and, well, you know.
But the Something Red. This cardigan has short row shaping up and around the neck so it curves ever so slightly. And the ribbing at the waist flares "just so." Instructions for longer sleeves are included.
I knit this up in the Blue Sky Alpacas Cotton, but a wool blend, or a cotton blend in a same gauge yarn would work well, too. And if red isn't your color. Try blue. Or try green. Or try...
