Help a sister out

Hey, everyone. K and everyone else. I know you're out there. I know people read this. I need some opinions. I'm working on the design of a sweater right now, and I'm up in the air with what I should do.

Here's the basic design.

Well, okay, I haven't exactly made the decision on the ends of the sleeves yet, but I'll figure that out when I get there. (Yes, I drew this on the back of my immunology notes.)

I'd like to make this in a simple allover stitch, and we've got two choices.

Number 1: Moss stitch

Number 2: Double Seed Stitch

Click for big. Here's both side by side.

Help me out. Which do you all think would be best? Leave me a comment.

oooh, that sweater sketch looks great! i would go for the double moss because i love it, but beyond that, it makes a nice textured fabric that doesn't make me want to kill myself while working on it :)

i think seed might be better as trim or for something a bit smaller, but i imagine this being quite coat-like.
