Color is a funny thing. I learn a lot about it by trial and error.
I bought these two skeins of of Malabrigo Worsted to play with some more brioche ideas. I wanted the multi-color to be the main color, and the Polar Frost to be the contrast color.
But the multi doesn’t really stand out here, or look very organized.
The back side is a little more cohesive; you can tell where the stitch columns are. This made me think that the semi-solid should be the MC, and the multi should be the CC. But this combination doesn’t really have much spark.
So I bought more yarn. This is how a non-swatcher accumulates a stash, by the way.
Now we’re cooking! I like this orange on the right side.
And because of the contrast with the bright orange, the multi-colored wrong side looks more cohesive, too.
What am I making? I’m just playing with a couple brioche ideas right now. We’ll see how it turns out!
