I’ve finally settled on Willow Down in the lovely pale yellow color below, for the main color.
It’s a bamboo yarn, very soft, plushy but light-weight. I think it’s going to work out great.
What I can’t decide on are the 3 contrast colors to go with the yellow.
As you can see above in the knit pattern, it looks good to have a definite contrast for the colors.
If you’d like to share your opinion, choose 3 colors from the 12 below, and leave the numbers in a comment.
I’d really appreciate your feedback!
YELLOW FOR THE MAIN COLOR
For the 3 contrast colors:
1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
As any of my regular readers already know, I love to knit.
In recent years, I’ve been “stretching” my knitting skills a bit, trying some more difficult patterns, stitches and techniques, including Fair Isle knitting.
This cardigan is my first (and to date, only) 😉 Fair Isle project I’ve completed:
I love this sweater and have had so many compliments about it already; I want to make another one, this time in a spring/summer cotton yarn.
I’m considering using Willow Yarn Cub .
If you haven’t checked out Willow Yarns yet, you’re in for a treat. They have some beautiful, natural fiber yarns available at prices that are hard to beat.
I’ve already knitted a swatch of this yarn and it looks great, with a the stitches showing up in a very defined way. I also love the soft colors this yarn comes in and the price is great too at $2.49 CDN/50 grams.
Here are the colors I am planning to use for this next cardigan:
This soft yellow for the main color.
And these three colors for the patternworks sections.
I like all 4 of these colors but can’t decide if yellow should be the main color or the mauve or green instead.
Your yarn color opinion please…what do you think?
