The twentieth-century American graphic designer Rob Roy Kelly is credited with saying:

If you can’t make it good, make it big.
If you can’t make it big, make it red.

My sister and I often apply this adage to our work. One day we
discussed how to embody the concept in a knitted garment that was good, big, and red. Beth produced the initial sketches for the design, which I knit up into this cozy cardigan.
