The colors are so close in tone that they almost blend together.
It’s very difficult to tell them apart while knitting particularly under incandescent lights.
I decided to go with a two-row stripe and since I have one more ball of the mallard (green) color, I began with it and will use it as the button band color.
The increase rows are distracting to me but that’s the nature of this beast. Hopefully blocking will even out those stitches so they are less noticeable.The wrong side.The neck edge is just four rows of garter stitch. I was thinking of making a picot hem for the sweater but keep the garter stitch at the sleeve hem. Just not sure. Would two different hem edges look dumb?
