Which is more elf-like?

I’m going to make a stocking cap. Don’t know which color scheme to use. Here are a few swatches I made up. Any suggestions? (sorry about the color, I don’t have very good lighting. But the green is “christmas green” and the red “christmas red”)

And because I promised photos, here’s 3 of my santa jacket ornaments. They still need bead buttons. And there’s one more to make.

    Those little jackets are adorable! As for the swatches, I like the red, green and white one.

    I also like the red, white and green, but you’ll have to make sure it doesn’t just look Italian rather than Christmas. The ornies are adorable, as usual!

    Make that 3 votes for the white, green, and red. The white and red looks too Cat-in-the-Hat-ish, and the green and red, um, looks kinda yucky to me. But maybe that’s just the photo. Anyway. Happy knitting!
