Hi, there just a quick post this evening. I did a lot of work on my fair isle mitt today and I think I just may have done something wrong. Either I missed something of the pattern or I need to change my colours – my current MC needs to be the CC. At the moment my MC is the petrol blue and the CC is the neon pink but I feel that the pattern on the front does not show well enough and that maybe if I turned this around and made the neon pink the MC and the petrol blue the CC things would look better. But before I actually go ahead and RIP out EVERYTHING I’ve knit over the last 48h, I need your help and support! What do you think? I hate frogging BUT I don’t want to finish an entire mitten IF I’ve done something wrong. I’m not that far along that I can’t bear to rip back so I think its now or never!
So for you to take a look and judge the work so far, here are the pictures
This is the front and this is the back I feel that the pattern on the back looks ok, If I change the colours around the back would be mostly pink. As for the front I just don’t know. Do you think I need to knit a bit more into the pattern before taking a decision? Or do you see a clear error immediately?
And for you to look at the original and what this should look like the pattern can be found on Ravelry by clicking here
Do share your thoughts on this:) Being the impatient knitter I am, I just might rip everything out by tomorrow but I KNOW I should think this through first so any advice/thoughts are welcome 🙂
