Deciding on major contrast color

I'm making this multicolor cardigan and I'm at the point where I need to decide which of the 10 colors I've used will be the main contrast / edging / etc.

 

Just went to Pantone Fall Colors .... and the colors I'm using are well within the range for Fall 2021  .....  and I've narrowed it down to two.  

 

I have another couple of hours to go before I reach the "point of no return" and make my decision.

 

Decisions ... decisions .... decisions .... I think I'm going with the green ..... (unless I change my mind).

@ALRATIBA    I surely wish you'd get in the habit of posting picture of your work.  I'd love to see what you're making. 

 

Having not seen your sweater, I'd probably pick black because it "sets off" other colors and goes with everything including looking great with black pants.

Re: Deciding on major contrast color

Since we don't have a lot of details, I'm assuming you are using multi color yarn or are you doing a patchwork like sweater?

 

Nevertheless, I would choose the dark color of the sweater and use that.

 

But you sound like a professional so whatever you choose will be nice.

It's 10 different colors - separate balls of yarn.  Randomly changing colors each row - every section different color order.'  It's not patchwork - it's stripes.  Very colorful casual cardigan.   

 

There are a couple of single rows of black accents in each section - but I don't want black as the major contrast.  I'm going with the dark green.
