These are the four faces of my first suffragette cuff. Naturally, I prefer the purple side
There are some mistakes in the white side, although I’ve checked and they’re mistakes in the knitting, not in the chart, so at some point soon I’ll publish the both-sides-right-way chart to go with the simple one. (It’s very exciting publishing a pattern on Ravelry and then watching people adding it to favourites and queue!)
I’m also planning some adjustments to the chart to suit a wider range of stitch counts – it should be fairly easy to narrow the pattern in several places. And I’m thinking about serifs…

It is pretty neat when you see people adding your patterns.:-)
I like the purple side better, too, and not just for the obvious “because it's purple” reason. I think the white lettering shows up better, at least in these pictures. Maybe if the purple were a darker shade, it would stand out better?
Yeah, I think you're right about the contrast. (Also, there are a couple of mistakes on the white side where stitches that should be purple are actually white, which doesn't help.)
Sadly, the local supply of yarn is bad enough that I was amazed and grateful to just be able to buy the colours I wanted, even without having a choice of shades. I'd prefer a darker purple and a brighter green if I made them again. But I can live with these colours by remembering that the yarn was *very* cheap
