Modification Mondays: Adult Trellis Surprise


Original Pattern: Trellis

Knitter Extraordinaire: Katie (Rav ID, Blog)

Mods: Dramatically resized the classic baby sweater pattern to create a beautiful grown-up version for adults.

What Makes This Awesome:  I think the February Lady Sweater proved just how popular a pattern can be when it's upsized for adults, and this amazing grown up Trellis sweater is so, so gorgeous. Just looking at the photos of Katie wearing her Trellis in winter is enough to make me absolutely positivity sure that this would be the perfect winter cardigan. I want one!! Project page, which includes lots of notes on how to upsize the Trellis sweater, can be found here.

Thanks for the feature! Hopefully adult Trellises will be keeping a few more knitters warm this winter!

I've been off post-grad due to illness for a while and have wanted to find new things to do... Knitting appeals to me because it's a cool challenge and it is probably gratifying to see and touch a clothing item you knitted yourself!

I love this sweater too. There's something so warm and wintery about grey wool. I'll never understand how people knit cables. I imagine it takes a lot skill!

Thank you so much for the tip! I've always wanted a me-sized version of that sweater, but I never would've found the pattern notes for it on my own.

Oh, very cool! Who knew a baby sweater could be so chic??

Wow! I already liked the kid size... now I really like the adult size! I hope that someone will write up the exact adult pattern!
