Colour Options for League

A couple of days ago, Ginger posted on Instagram that she was trying to figure out a colour scheme for League. League, in case you don’t know it, is a pullover design from the most recent Brooklyn Tweed collection. It’s a colour block design which utilizes just a little intarsia; I know that intarsia isn’t many knitters’ favourite technique, so I kept it to just the shoulders. The rest of the blocking depends on seaming.

As a blogger with a permanent writer’s block, I welcome any post inspiration, so I was happy to draw up a set of ideas. The top row features three colours as in the pattern, but I think that it can be a successful design using two colours as well. I do wonder about one thing, though – how many of you have access to a vector creation tool? Would it be helpful to be able to download a file of the above image so as to test out your own colour combinations?
