I finally finished my “Sexy Red Eccentric Cable Scarf”, I spoke of in my Design Series post. My inspiration had been a red scarf, Carrie wore in “Sex and the City”, the first movie. I am a lover of the color red, so coming up with a design I would wear was easy; I just made sure I purchased the right shade of red. Red is one of those colors anyone can wear, providing you find the right shade for your skin color. There are warm reds with yellow undertones, and cool reds with blue undertones. I fall into the warm camp, as my skin tone is fair with yellow undertones. So my yarn choice was Cascade 220, in Bright Red color #8414, a fabulous basic Peruvian Highland wool (my favorite fiber) that shows off the cable pattern.
I must say I love the results, and I will enjoy wearing this scarf for many years to come.
