Modification Mondays: Lagon Sweater

Original Pattern: Lagon Sweater

Knitter Extraordinaire: Zita (Rav Id)

Mods: Turned the original knit-in-the-round yoked pullover into a raglan-sleeved cardigan.

What Makes This Awesome: I love it when people know themselves well enough to figure out which sleeve style works best for them, and if their wardrobe needs a cardigan or another pullover. Zita's cardigan is a gorgeous example of how knowing yourself can allow you to transform what was already a beautiful pullover into a truly wonderful cardigan. The result is really amazing, and even her buttons are perfect, too! . Details on how she turned it into a raglan sleeved cardigan can be found on her project page here

Right on - there's been so many patterns I've come across and thought "but I'd never wear that in a (cardi/sweater/etc...)"
