I don't know how you can knit a winter cardigan in May - I'm looking forward to summer knitting! Why not wait until it's completed, knit a square and practice the two different colours of embroidery? It's looking good so far!


That is one glamorous bride :) I vote for the cool shades to go with the blue.


Le style autrichien, ce sont des broderies contrastées (pour qu'on les voit bien je suppose ?). Si tu mets un bleu dur (bleu électrique, bleu roi)ou un gris, et du vert sapin avec du blanc et une pointe de rouge/orange ou jaune (couleur chaude), ça devrait êrte dans le style. Bon week end !


Je vote pour le contraste aussi !
Bon WE françoise.


Je vote pour les couleurs pastels! Mais je te fais confiance : de toutes façons ce sera superbe, comme d'hab'!


I think maybe the cooler colors would be better suited to your cardigan, but maybe take a swatch as Dawn said to do and see how it turns out. I love the blue color so far, and I am sure it will be lovely when it is finished up.


Isn´t this great - I am in the same mood to knit that cardigan and was already thinking about the colours. This is not so easy for me, because this cardi is similar to the traditional style here in Bavaria and I don´t want to look too traditional. Blue and grey are wonderful with a warm cherry red and cream in my eyes, in a more traditional way black or dark blue would also be nice. Oh, I am really excited that you are knitting it now before me, I really would like to stop Marigold at once and start it, too.


I love that cardigan. The color you chose is lovely. I vote for doing a contrasting color in a warm shade. What Krawuggl suggested with a warm red sounds wonderful. I love the photo you found too. That expression must be universal for all knitters trying a particularly fiddly maneuver.


I like the idea of cooler colours but then I would say that, wouldn't I? Although when I look at the beige cardigan in the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK book with the contrast embroidery in red, I think I may be wrong. Not very helpful, huh? x
