WIP-Something Red and Yellow


After losing some steam on this project in the last week, I got through several rows of ribbing before taking this picture last night. I'm really liking the fit so far. I've been debating about how to do the short-row collar, as well as the increases in the ribbing.
Here's some of my thoughts on the matter:
-If I make the collar as wide as it is in the pattern, it will overlap in the front (this tells me I probably could have made a smaller size), which I don't want, so I will definitely make the collar more narrow.
-I think the fit is loose enough without adding ribbing increases. I do like the sway the increases provide, and I"m wondering if I could create the same effect with some decreases instead, or if it will look alright with just straight ribbing.
-I'm also considering doing the short rows in yellow for emphasis, or maybe yellow with a thin red border.
Anyone have thoughts on these modifications?
I'd like to crank this out in the next week or so. I've got to get started on the Square Cake for Terra's wedding. It's almost April!
