I'm thinking of keeping the back of the vest a gorgeous, soft green colour (think pistachio with a dollop of cream mixed in). But using that green as one of the coloured rows. Kaffe Fassett's advice is not to keep the back plain but utilise all the colours but in a more subtle way. Mmmm, what do you think?

The k1,p1, ribing is one of my favorites. But then, I'm an Eastern European knitter.

I think that could be really nice!

Well - now that I've finished the back of my vest. I've come to the conclusion that a multi-coloured front probably is going to be very tricky as both parts are in two halves (it's a button up vest).

I think I may need to consider colour changes VERY carefully and make sure they line up (not so easy).

Or - keep the whole garment the lovely avocado/pistachio green it is.

Ideas?

If you have a circular you can do both fronts at the same time - with their own separate yarn, of course. It may get convoluted with different colors, but that way you'd be sure to use the same colors on the same row.

I'm always in favor of knitting two sleeves or the fronts of cardigans at the same time. You can easily get the color changes and shaping on the same rows that way. It may be easier to wind some small balls or bobbins of the separate colors. That may mean a few more ends to weave in but it'll be worth it to avoid a tangle of different (though beautiful!) color yarns.
