Violets are my favourite flower, and as soon as I saw someone's Birkin jumper with purple flowers in the middle row I knew immediately that I had made a start on my colour choices!
I used the Knit Picks yarn called "Palette" with the main colour called "Oregon Coast Heather." I bought 3 shades of each of the other colours so that I could swatch and decide. I ended up knitting all the way into the purple flower when I decided it was too yellow and so had to unravel it back and added in an orange flower instead of two rows of yellow flowers. I also added another purple to give the big flowers a bit of extra depth.
This is the only other alteration I made. I added a row of the green leaves to each sleeve, as well as kept knitting the arm decreases until I got to a full length sleeve.
LOVE this jumper! I really enjoyed knitting it and am very happy with the end result! I wore it to the Edinburgh Yarn Festival and had a few kind ladies compliment me on it. My first ever yoked, top down jumper and I am already planning another yoked top down !
