Very Berry (McCall’s 6162)


Oxblood was the color of the season last fall. Even a year later, this broody berry (or moody maroon, if you please) is the perfect match for the changing colors of the leaves.


This wine double knit has been awaiting the right time and pattern to make its debut. Enter McCall’s 6162. I love the lined bodice, the just-below-the-knee length (hello, attractive calves!) and of course those fashion-forward armhole bands. The original pattern called for a back zip, but I omitted it. The knit was stretchy enough for pullover ease.
