If you couldn’t tell from my two red sweater WIPS, I’m a big red lover, and I was especially enamored with this red version of Chuck made by Melissa, HelloMissy on Ravelry. I like how the semi-solid Madelinetosh adds an extra bit of interest to the sweater, and that shade of red looks perfect with the bright blue dress she’s wearing in her FO pictures. It’s such a cheerful looking sweater and outfit.
About her project Melissa says, “I was really nervous when I started this project, as it was only my second sweater, but this pattern was so easy to understand. The sweater fits like it was made for me – I didn’t have to make any mods (and thank goodness as I’m still a newbie sweater knitter at this point!). I have received so many compliments on it; I can’t wait until the weather cools off so I can start wearing it again.” You can find Melissa’s project notes for her Chuck on Ravelry, and she blogs at Melissa in Progress.
