I’ve knit up a couple swatches for Road to Golden (and enlarged them with some Photoshop help).
There are things I like about both of these swatches. #1 is my favorite of the two, but I do like parts of the other as well.
I think #2 needs a non-white color for that single line that goes across it. And, the orange and red (even though they’re never next to each other) create a muddiness rather than a distinct line.
I may try one or two more swatches before casting on. I want to make sure I get this right!
