To Embellish or Not?

That is the question. I posted this on my Instagram/Facebook yesterday but didn’t get time to write a blog post. I spent most of yesterday cleaning house.

So here’s the finished sweater with no embroidery yet. I wanted a picture of it like this to add as an option for the pattern when I publish it. I also wanted to have a comparison as to whether I even still wanted to do that at all. So, here’s a sample with half of the embroidery done. What do you think? I am leaning towards finishing the other side.

  1. I love the added embroidery! Will be looking for the pattern release as we are having a granddaughter in November!!

    1. Thanks Chris. Congratulations on the granddaughter. Hope your daughter is doing better. <3

  2. I love the embroidery. I say do it!

    1. That has been the consensus so far. Thanks!

  3. I’d add the embellishment for a girl but leave it plain for a boy (of course you’d have to switch the buttonhole placement). Trying to think of a simple design for a boy.

    1. Yes I agree. I was thinking to add that suggestion in the pattern. Plain for a boy if desired. For that matter it could be left plain for a girl too. Knitter’s choice! 😉

  4. Love the embroidery!

  5. Thank you!

  6. I love it both ways! I would definitely include it as an option in the pattern!

    1. Thanks for the feedback 😀

  7. I love the embroidery, and one could pick a favorite color to personalize it.
