Design Dilemma

So here's Matt's Beauty of Grey pullover that I've been sort of ignoring. (This year's knitting was going to be focused on me and color!). As you can see, it's actually getting close to being done.

I have the neckline to deal with and I want to make a deeper hem on the bottom. However, right now I need to make a decision on the sleeves.

The sleeves are at the point where I need to decide if I want to just continue the single dark stripe all the way to the cuff or switch to the thick even stripes as on the bottom.

This decision will have an impact on the cuff, as I'll do a ribbed cuff with the single stripe and a hemmed cuff if I do the even stripe (again to match the bottom).

The other consideration is the "lining up" factor. This sweater is fairly long, so the even stripes will not line up with that bottom striping. Part of me thinks that it will look funky with the sleeve border stripes a lot higher on the body than the bottom border?

So Opinons Welcomed (but not necessarily followed). Tell me what you would do and why!

  1. I'd continue the stripes as you have them on the sleeves.
