Modification Monday: Cozy Hoodie

Original Pattern: 109-1 Jumper with Hood

Knitter Extraordinaire: Alli (Rav id, blog)

Mods: Used the structure of the Drops hoodie pattern for the bulk of the sweater, but change the original collar and hood trim from ribbing to cables- specifically the cables from this pattern.

What Makes this Awesome: Sometimes you see a really great pattern, but you know that there are certain details that just aren't quite right. Say, you love the shape and style of one, but prefer the details of another totally different pattern. This little slice of hoodie perfection is the perfect mash up of the structure of the Drops pattern, with the awesome cabling detail of a completely different (and un hooded) cardi. And you just can't fight facts- hoodies are awesome. Project page is here.

And for any fellow Canucks out there, happy thanksgiving!! I've personally been verfed by my family, and am about to begin the journey back to Toronto in preparation for normal life after a long weekend at home. There has been plenty of knitting, stay tuned!

Those modification Mondays really get me thinking about mixing some patterns too! Right now, I would be more of the No Modification Tuesdays: same pattern, same yarn, same color!!! Very nice hoodie! Have a great week!

Cute! I love the way the cabled front opens up into a hood! The look is super flattering.

I'm loving this sweater weather!
