Colour Me Herringbone

Quick Poll:

I've been toying with the idea of creating a herringbone sweater, with gradual colour changes throughout.

I have a couple choices in colour families to utilize, seen individually in the pictures below.

Which do you prefer?

I LOVE the greens you've picked. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Ooh, I can't WAIT to see more of this. Of course, I can never resist green, but the orange and red tones look very you.

I'd normally go for orange/yellow/red colour combo, but if you're looking for some gradual colour change, then the green combo is the one. Looks really great.

I love the greens, but think the reds are amazing.

Definitely the greens! (But I may be biased.)

Rosie said...

Greens for your coloring.

I think the greens would look fantastic! The color changes would also be more subtle and look more like traditional herringbone, IMO.

Green is my all time favourite but besides that I think for the effect you are looking for that the green would be the better choice - can't wait for the pattern :-)

They're both beautiful, but the mix of yellow with the reds is just too pretty to pass up. Whichever you choose, it'll be stunning!

Love the greens - like granny smith apples - sweet!

Anna said...

I definitely like the greens. That said the oranges/yellows/reds are gorgeous too!

(in other words, I am no help whatsoever)

I think the greens will work the best. The colors of all your choices are beautiful.

At first glance, I was leaning towards the greens. But after looking at the pictures a little more, I'd say go with the multi-colors! They remind me of a sweater that my grandma knit for my grandfather.

I love the reds and yellows! Though I don't think you could go wrong. Can't wait to see more!

the greens (but it's all green all the time for me, so maybe I'm not the best voice to shout out)
