I don’t know if this is the best place to post this, but here goes.
I knit jumpers for Mary Maxim dolls, which are then displayed for sale in the charity shop where I volunteer. Up to now I have used one colour at a time - or variegated - but recently I found some purple and some lemon yarn which looked nice together and thought I would knit a jumper in stripes. However, the pattern consists of a mix of ribbing and stockinette stitch and I soon discovered that horizontal stripes don’t work well with ribbing. I gave up the idea and started knitting the thing in one colour. When I was half way through the pattern, I had another think about it and thought maybe I could do something with the two colours together.
I have some ideas in my head, but can’t decide which would be best.
Here they are - tell me what you think.
Ribbing one colour, stockinette the other.
Ribbing one colour, stockinette the same, but with 4 rows of stockinette in other colour.
Ribbing one colour, stockinette the same, but with 4 rows of garter stitch in other colour.
Ribbing one colour, stockinette the other colour, but with 4 rows of stockinette/garter in the same colour as the ribbing.
Vertical striping throughout.
Vertical striping in the ribbed sections only.
Any other ideas gratefully received.
