I'm trying to decide whether to rip it out and start over, or to just switch dominance when I change the teal yarn for petrol after this motif. This is the Voss Cowl by Jeffrey Wall (cc: @the_yarn_guys). Stranded colorwork is so much fun. I fear, however, I am letting the wrong color be dominant. I'm letting the teal be dominant and it is definitely popping on top of the cream. That works fine on the checkerboard square, but I don't think it's right for the other squares. Or the borders. I probably should have worked the the new Stripe Domination pattern by @twinsetellen as a colorwork refresher and to really delve into the techniques before I started the cowl…. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #cowl #colorwork
