Knitting: Black & Pink Patterned Sweater for Lesotho

... And yet another sweater for the children of Lesotho. :)

I took the same basic raglan sweater pattern and tried a different variation this time.

I did the yoke in all black, stockinette stitch. Then I switched to the dark pink, alternating strips of a pattern and stockinette. It's hard to see in the photos, but it does show up quite well in real life.

I used a decorative stitch from The Knitting Stitch Bible called Textured Stitch on the Diagonal (p.81).

I really like how this one turned out! It used a little more yarn, and it appears to be a tad bit bigger. I'm not sure if that's because of the different stitch or not, but I'm still very happy with it.

I pulled your picture up big so I could see the design in did a great job (as usual), and I like the pattern in the sweater!
