Modification Mondays: Hew





Original Pattern: Hew

Knitter Extraordinaire: Milly (Rav id)

Mods: changed the neckline completely by adding a leaf lace edging (which can be found here). Also worked the ties in garter stitch instead of stocking stitch. Added the lace trim detail to the sleeves. 


What Makes This Awesome: I already loved this pattern, it just seems like the perfect little shrug that you can thrown on to make a tank top or a t-shirt have a little more oomph. I love the way the lace edging at the neckline drapes, it gives this such a romantic feel. |I've got this in my queue, and I think I might do this mod- that's how much I love it! The edging on the sleeves is a great touch, as well. The project page is here.

Oh, neat!! I love the original Hew, and I love this one too. My favorite is how the collar folds down in the back. So pretty!

I really love seeing mods, and I *really* love this one. I think I just might have to re-discover a skein or two and make this one for me :)
(ps: thanks for the linky poo to the lace edging she used in the mod. It's very lovely).
