Modification Mondays: Razor Pullover

Original Pattern:Razor Cami  

Knitter Extraordinaire: Anna (Rav Id, Blog


Mods: Turned this popular camisole pattern into a long sleeved tunic-style pullover. And how perfect is that little black stripe? I love the bit of contrast and interest it provides. You can duplicate her efforts by following the details on her project page, which is here.



 What Makes this Awesome: I'll admit that while I have some knitted tank tops (and tube tops) in my wardrobe, I don't wear them nearly as often as I wear things with sleeves. This is a brilliant way to take a great pattern and adapt it to what you'll actually wear more often. I love the effortless, just-throw-it-on look of this sweater, and a lacy pullover is a fantastic layering piece that can be worn through a lot of seasons, depending on the fibre content and what you layer underneath.I love how pretty this looks!

I really like this Razor sweater. The Razor Cami was very popular when I stated knitting and I thought it was very pretty, but would not really wear it. I like this transformation!

That is just awesome. Such a good idea (especially the funky black stripe!) and it looks like a *really* wearable knit!

Ohh I love this! It is like a super adorable Charlie Brown sweater with the stripe. I've always loved that lace pattern and I'm so happy it makes such a wearable long sleeved sweater.

That is a fabo mod. I know I'd never wear a knit cami, and this is the perfect way to adapt a cami pattern into something I'd actually sport :)
