Same but different

Domino sweater in progress by Asplund

You get a different effect knitting Marianne Isager's design with a single colour. In her original sweater there is more focus on the shape of the individual mitred squares, while my version will emphasise the overall effect of the combination of them: panels rather than squares, since the vertical lines stand out.

I like both of them, so I might make another one similar to the sweater in the book some day. Isn't fascinating what a difference even a minor change of colour(s) can make?

Now I'm also a happy owner of the book. Haven't decided where to start yet, though...

You have realizes a thought I had, when I saw the model in the book, and I think it is much more beautiful in one color.
