View Full Version : opinions needed from the lovely KH crowd

I need your opinions.

I am knitting a baby cardigan in green and blue stripes. I wrote down to do 6 rows seed stitch blue, 2 rows garter green, 6 rows garter blue, 2 rows seed green.

But then I got 6 rows seed stitch in blue, then did the 2 rows of garter stitch in green, and wonder should I stick to this?

I just got thinking that maybe it wouldn't look right with mixing the garter and seed stitches up in both colors.

What do you think?

I love seed stitch too! And, the colors sound really pretty!

It is hard to tell without a photo, but my first thought is that the seed stitch and garter stitch might look too similar. I love the way seed stitch looks with stockinette though!
