I changed my mind. Again. But on the bright side it’s better I change my mind before I start knitting. So perhaps I should say, I’m thinking things through.
I know the point of the Ugly Christmas Sweater (henceforth to be known as UCS) is to be ugly, but if it’s too ugly and I spent all my gift cards on a disaster I’d get annoyed. So UCS is getting a makeover.
Iterations of the Charts:
Navy and white: Looked good then I decided I wanted more color and it didn’t look as good.
The above with color: I thought it looked pretty cool, till I tiled the pattern and zoomed out. Wow, that’s an eyesore.
Snowflakes: I liked this chart, wait, no I don’t.
Snowflakes: Placed diagonally… nope. Looks like another sweater I’ve seen.
Band: The one section of the band I like best. Only issue, I’d have long floats and I don’t feel like trapping them.
Chart 5.1 and 5.2:
Still too many stitches in between.
Voila! I think I like this. The two darker colors are similar so it won’t matter if I use less of one of them and no long floats to worry about.
Once I got UCS Chart 5.3 tiled out I rearranged the repeat to start where I want it to. I should probably figure out how many stitches to CO at some point… and to center the chart on the sweater. I think this deserves another coffee.
