Modification Mondays: Poison Cardigan


Original Pattern: Cameo

Knitter Extraordinaire: Stacy (Rav Id, Blog)

Mods: Changed the neckline to a scooped square, knitted it in stockinette, added waist shaping, and used baby cables instead of ribbing around the neckline, sleeves, and hem.

What Makes This Awesome: I'm always so impressed when someone looks at a knitting patten, and decides to change almost everything every about it. I love the timeless look and style of this gorgeous little sweater, and the generous quantity of buttons. The baby cables are a wonderful detail and are really enhanced by the stockinette body. This is the kind of sweater that just goes with everything! Project page, including details on her mods, can be found here.
