Modification Monday: Intertwined Cables Skirt

Knitter Extraordinaire: Yumiko (rav id, flickr id) Mods: She used the lush cable design on the sweater, and turned it into a sassy skirt. Original Pattern: Man's Intertwined Cable Pullover What Makes This Awesome: I'll admit right now that I love knitted skirts. I think they are so flattering. Go check out the Fo galleries of all the knitted skirts, you'll see they look good on so many body types. I love the look of richly cabled sweaters, and this cabled skirt is so, so gorgeous. This is a great example of how any kind of pullover style could easily be a skirt- fair isle, cables, you name it. Yumiko did a fantastic job- she has lots of great projects to check out on her projects page, too! Check out the skirt here.
