Centre front is farther away that it seemed at first glance. I am not much closer to it than I was yesterday.
I did though, last night, arrive at my first, centre-back, colour patch.
Both front and back centres have a five-stitch panel of contrasting colours and different stitches.They alternate, at knitters will, between stockinet and reverse stockinet with either of those in main or contrasting colours. My contrast colours will be the dark brown which matches a stripe in the skirt but of which I have only a small amount of yarn, the bright orange that will also be at the neck and the triangular sleeve insert and also I will use the cream coloured 'One Of A Kind' yarn on its own. In the sweater, that ceam is held together with two strands of the very fine brown tweed. But as one of the colour-patch colours, I will use it on its own.
Although definitely not centre- front, it was still fun to try out that first colour patch square. Marching on towards centre-front now.
