Decisions...

If you're a knitter and you have some time, open this ravelry page (effortless cardigan) in a new page and look at the sweater.

Then come back to me and tell me what you think about me changing the color of the ribbing to one of the four in the picture (I'm calling them 12:00, 3:00, 6:00 and 9:00)

My first instinct was 3:00 but you know how I love that color. My second instinct was 6:00 because then it would be lovely with black or brown clothes. My third instinct was "different colored ribbing"? That's stupid.

After the Sharpie Adult Suprize Jacket, I'm inclined to seek out honest opinions before I mindlessly knit, knowing that my blog friends have a little more visual class than I do.



And if you don't have a ton of time to look at the sweater, feel free to chime in on which pairing your eyes prefer for the ribbing in a slouchy sweater.

3:00 is my fave. :)

I'm gonna be a stick in the mud and say not to change color on the ribbing. Of course, my opinion really doesn't matter since I won't be wearing this sweater. If you like the change and will enjoy wearing the sweater, then go for it, girl!!!!

I'd go with 6.

I'd personally keep the same color but since I'm brain dead today, I say six.

I'm not sure I like the idea of different color ribbing, but if you're going to do it, I choose 6:00.

I'd go with 3, it is gorgeous

9:00 is lovely and now I have stash lust, but for the sweater I think 3:00 complements the sweater yarn best.

I'm in the "don't change the ribbing color" camp. I don't want the eye going to the ribbing at my ass, but that's just me.

So what did you decide? I'd say stay with the same color for the ribbing too but maybe on the sides.....
