Modification Mondays: Welt and Rib Reversible


Original Pattern: Welt and Rib Raglan


Knitter Extraordinaire: Sarah (Rav Id)

Mods: Lengthened the body, added waist shaping and adjusted decreases to create a dart effect in the back. Project page is here.


What Makes This Awesome: I've had a soft spot for this pattern since I first saw it in the winter 2008 issue of Interweave Knits. It looks so weareable, stylish, and comfortable. Sarah did an awesome job of customizing this pullover; adding length where she needed it and adjusting the waist shaping to create a striking detail in the back. This makes me re-think how I do my waist shaping- who says you have to have it all along the side seams?! The result is gorgeous!

I totally agree re: waist shaping. It looks great there, and opened my mind up to those decrease placements!
