Picking out beads can be tricky. If you match the color too closely, they disappear into the knitted fabric. If you go too far the other way they are all you see.
I thought I had found a perfect match - deep chocolatey brown yarn and a pale Antique pink bead.
But after spending a day pairing them up, I wasn't so sure. All of the sudden it looked like I had waaaaaayyyyy too high of a contrast in colors.
Before I ripped it out, though, I decided to see what it would look like if pinned out and blocked.
Now I'm not so sure.
What do you think?
For reference, this is the pattern. The beads in the original don't show up at all, so for better pictures of their placement, check out the gallery of finished projects.
