Modification Mondays: Francis

I bet that without out the title, you'd never guess which sweater this beautiful pullover started out being: Original Pattern: Francis Revisited Knitter Extraordinaire: Mandy (Rav id, Blog) Mods: Adjusted gauge, neckline, and sleeves to create a totally customized and very different sweater. What Makes This Awesome: This is a 3 sweater hybrid knit, which started off with the basic structure of Francis, but took on some of the style and details of two other sweaters from Phildar: The first Phildar sweater in that equation is from the Autumn 021 catalogue, and the final sweater in the addition is from Phildar Spring/Summer 019 catalogue. The resulting sweater looks beautifully designed, comfy, and flattering. And can I just say how much I love the sleeves? Love the sleeves. Love them! I think I need a sweater with sleeves like this.

I know what you mean with the sleeves... I must save in my head the idea to use it somewhere on a future sweater

Love the sleeves! This is definitely a look I'm going to have to make this Fall. Add it to the queue!

This is definitely an amazing mod, but now I've got my eye on that last Phildar sweater as is. This feature is dangerous.

That looks awesome! I really love the rolled sleeve detail. Now I want to make that last cardigan with the rolled sleeves. Unfortunately we are about to go into summer here so it'll have to wait till next year.
