Help! Knitters Eye required.

This isn't my actual next post .. that's full of writings about stuff in my draft folder. 

But I'm just sewing up the cardigan I've knit for my friend's little girl. I've used self stripey/patterning wool - which as you know - BLOWS MY MIND! But I made the conscious effort to NOT pattern match and I like the charming patchworkesque effect. 

However. I'm struggling to decide which sleeve to put where. What do you think? 
Option one is where the lighter pink dappled pattern is at the shoulder matching the lighter pink dappled boy on the right front. 
Option two is well erm, the other way round! 
I'm thinking option two but if you can be bothered to comment Id love to know your opinion! Not picked buttons yet!! 

Thanks in advance 
Love from

  1. Option 1 for me. Now there's a dilemma!

  2. Option one you fool of a Took ;-)

  3. Has to be option one for me too. Don't forget to let us know what you decide. Either way it's a lovely colour and I'm sure the recipient will love it.

  4. Sorry, it"s option 2 for me. Just to throw a spanner in the works!!

  5. Option one Rach :o)

  6. I'd go for option 2 as well! It really is lovely....gorgeous colours!!

    keep well

  7. Option 2 for me as I feel the patterny bit is a little too busy. But either way it's a beautiful cardigan. I still love that edging.

  8. I would go for option 2. looks like that would be better balanced, but I am a bit OCD about balancing things!
