i knitted this some weeks ago. i had an urge for red and i think it looks great on alba. the yarn is debbie bliss: luxury donegal tweed. and amazingly childish yarn, if i can say so. the flecks in blue and green makes it very cheerful to look at. i used approximately 5 balls for a size two.
this yarn is cheap but one can order tweed yarn from the exact same mill at www.lavenderyarns.com in ireland.
the design is based on ez's raglan. i have made that for children before and i love the design. the cable is from barbara walker. one side of the cable is moss-stitch and the other stockinette. that is a lovely feature.
