Although these are the same two sweaters, the do look a bit different in color. The second darkest one with the sleeves unrolled is the true color. This is a bulky yarn from Lion's Brand called Homespun in a cranberry color. Don't remember the real color name. It works up quickly, but takes a bit more than one skein for an 18 month sweater. I bought several to make some for myself in variegated colors of greens and blues so hope to make a V-neck sweater some day for me!
