Modification Mondays: Starry Vest


Original Patterns: Blush and Fresco Colourwork Wrap Vest

Knitter Extraordinaire: Marije (Rav ID)

Modifications: Used the Blush vest instructions for the basic layout of the vest, and the chart for the Fresco Colourwork Wrap Vest.

What Makes This Awesome: I love seeing it- the perfect mash up of two great patterns. The colourwork vest was lovely, but wrap vests (or wrap sweaters) aren't for everyone.  This vest is so beautiful- the colourwork and simple shape are so very wearable. I love it! Just goes to show that if you find a great pattern that fits and flatters you, you can always use other patterns as jumping-off points for using colourwork or even stitch patterns to revamp a classic style.

Wow! What a merger! The vest looks a million times better and you're absolutely right about why this vest is so awesome. Very wearable, flattering and classic. Amazing knitting!
