Knitpicks Cotlin Colors
Have any of you used Knitpicks Cotlin?
http://www.knitpicks.com/CotLin+Yarn_YD5420162.html

I'm trying to decide which color to use on on the Interweave Knits Spring 2009 Petal Halter
http://www.interweaveknits.com/previ...p#Petal-Halter

Would the clementine be too much or the pomengranate color?

Or should I just go with black or linen?

Thanks for any opinions!

Erin

I think the pomegranate would be AMAZING.

I'm not a fan of orange, but I do like the pomegranate! The sweater looks like a flower so any 'flowery' color would be wonderful!

I used Cotlin last summer to make a camisole. I really like the feel of the yarn and it drapes well. I would use it again. I love being able to throw it in the washer and dryer. The pomegranite would be gorgeous.

I really like orange, so I think the clementine would look great. It looks more flowery to me. I think the color would really complement the pattern.

That said I do really like the pomegranate too.
