Ya’ll, this pattern is fun! It’s been a minute since I did anything with this much color-work and I’m enjoying it thoroughly.
While last time I made a big deal about following someone else’s pattern and not doing any of my own math, I must admit I cheated a little bit. I’d heard people complaining about the neck/short row situation on this sweater, so I changed it up a little. Instead of working 7 rows of ribbing for the collar, I did 5. And instead of doing 5 sets of short rows, I did 3. I think it’ll do nicely. No turtleneck here!And I think I’m liking how these colors are playing together for the most part. There’s still a part of me that’s a little skeptical of the pink-yellow variegated, but I think that’s because it’s just so far outside of the colors I usually pick. And, I am a little concerned about the contrast between the pink and the gray in the big “arrow” section of the yoke. (Though, honestly this picture makes it look pretty nice. It’s a little less clear in real life.)I’m almost to the end of the yoke, which is both exciting (yay! I’m that much closer to finishing), and a little sad (boo! I’m that much closer to finishing). It’s a fun little project, and with no sleeves and not much body to knit, it’ll be done before I know it.
What do you think of the colors? I think I like them, but I’m still on the fence a bit.
