I kind of like the non-red skeins of yarn I bought. But, I only have two of them. I might have to re-think the pattern, and do something different so it doesn't stripe so much (the red). Perhaps doing the pattern in pieces rather than back and forth. The pattern is worked from the neck down to the yoke.Who would have thought I would have liked the other better?
My first inclination was to buy a skein of each. I should have stuck with my first thought! But, then I should have paid attention to the pattern. I read it, but didn't pay attention to it. It says to avoid striping, work with two balls of yarn and switch every two rows. I think I'll try that out before ripping out or searching for a different pattern.
