I’m in a fever, and the only prescription is more KNITTING. A fambly member this Thanksgiving admired this trio of Jo Sharp DK enough that she WINS IT. I’m going to knit her a sweater, little does she know. A couple of questions:
1. Will this sweater, the unabashedly stripey Punch from Rowan 27, work using only three colors instead of five?
2. Here’s the pullover version of Punch. I like the arm stripe pattern of the first Punch but I like the pulloverness of this one. Should I throw in a fourth color, this buttery Lightweight DK? Or should it remain a semi-murky set of three colors? I don’t have a fifth color on hand that would tie in, and I am working under strict Stash Reduction Guidelines.
So: I’m thinking this should be a pullover Punch version 2, but with color vibe and sleeve stripes of Punch version 1. But with three or four colors?
Puhlease help. I’m crippled with indecision. I need a pigeon to come flap at me.
PS The colors in the popup under “this trio” are truer than the other pix. The three shades are pretty distinct, I think.
