Modification Mondays: Sarah's Favourite Cardigan

Original Pattern: Favorite Cardigan

Knitter Extraordinaire: Sarah (Rav Id)

Mods:  Changed the boat neck to a crew neck, lengthened the sweater, and altered the sizing. Also included shaping, and a slightly different button band. Wonderful details on her mods can be found here.

What Makes This Awesome: I can't get over how different this cardigan looks from the original, and yet the modifications (while plentiful) are not designed to drastically change the look of the sweater. The transformative powers of a different neckline and shaping are never so evident as they are here! I love the classic details, and the neckline looks fantastic. I LOVE this version!

Oh dear! Another one for the queue. I love the mods on this, crew neck over boat neck any day.
