A style question...


Lacy Jumper 1951 Vintage Sweater
I'm just about finished with the sweater I've been working on, and I am at a point where I need to make a style/color decision. I'm having a hard time figuring out what I want to do, so I'd like to hear your opinions. The pattern is from 1951, and this is the photo from the original magazine.



I only had one skein of yarn for this whole project (it wasn't originally intended for this purpose), so I don't have enough to finish the collar and cuffs. So now we come to my question. I have just enough to finish the sleeves and neck with a simple crochet edge....OR, I could use a different color yarn to make a contrasting collar and cuffs. I was thinking something in the white/cream family.




So, should I leave it plain or make the contrasting pieces (and if so what color)?

  1. No se si esto te ayuda, pero yo lo terminaría con un borde de crochet y no cambiaría de color, creo que así tiene más posibilidades de combinaciones. Huelga decir que es verdaderamente precioso!!

  2. I think the simple crochet is the best, it might look gimicky otherwise?
