I completed my version of Wendy Bernard's Tomato pattern, from the No Sheep For You, book. I used King Tut's mercerized cotton in a burgundy and silver colorway. I changed where the herringbone pattern was placed and did corrugated ribbing on the neckline. I also used the contrasting color on the arm edging and to bind of the bottom. More pics can be found on my blog.

That looks great.  I really like the ribbing around the neck.  I also think the colors work together really well.  Bravo!

Thanks. I'm not usually too adventurous with the modifications, but I think it worked for this one. I'm glad I tried something new for me.

I think the herringbone is much improved where you put it.  I thought about making that sweater without the herringbone, but the thought of completely unbroken ss was a little eye glazing...  Smiley   You did a great job!

Ooh, that's really pretty - I think that's the nicest version of Tomato I've seen.

Very nice!  It is really flattering on you.  I like the pattern moved down, I would have to do that for sure.  I also agree that the neckline looks great, I'm glad you reworked it.
