Modification Monday: Spring Tee


Original Pattern: Emmaline

Knitter Extraordinaire: Jessica (Rav Id, blog)

Mods: Changed the gauge completely by making the bulky-weight pattern into a lovely and summery sport weight tee.
What Makes this Awesome: The Emmaline design is really lovely, but I think a lot of people (and I'll confess, myself included) hesitate at the idea of a bulky-weight tee for summer. I know that a huge part of the pattern is that it's so unexpected, but when I saw Jessica's take on it, it just looked so right. I love how changing the gauge gave this tee a light, summery look that is classic and perfect with anything. This top looks like it's equally at home with a great pair of jeans or a pretty, dressy skirt. That's versatility!  Just look at the final result- so gorgeous. so flattering. so wearable!! Details on how she did it all are on her project page.
