Stranded colourwork – colour dominance

When knitting the Doge’s Palace Cowl I carried the background (stone) colour in my right hand and the contrast (brickwork) colour in my left hand – which resulted in the brickwork standing out as the dominant colour. To understand better why this impacts how the pattern looks, there is an interesting article by Ysolda Teague which you can find here.
