Many thanks to Elizabeth D, who not only donated the yarn for these sweaters, but who has also uploaded these photographs for me! Thanks also to "cti', whose delightful sweater pattern inspired my designs here.
The multicolored sweater is a woman's size small, while the red one is a child's size 10. Both are done in single crochet with variations for the stripes, which make for a thick and warm fabric. Both will make it on time for this campaign, and there is yarn leftover for mittens next time, hooray!
I learned a lot figuring out how to make these, bottom-up without a pattern, and had lots of fun--but I think I'll go easier next time. Too many ends to weave in! Phew.
