Modification Monday: Extra Long & Cozy Owls Cardi


Original Pattern: Owls

Knitter Extraordinaire: Sachiko (Rav Id, Blog)

Mods: Turned the wonderful and popular pullover into an oversized cardigan with a collar, and added pockets.



What Makes This Awesome:  I love everything about this cardigan- the slouchy and oversized fit looks so comfy, the collar looks cozy, and the pockets are amazing - I love the button detail.  And even better, all of her mods look completely integrated into the rest of the pattern- the garter stitch button band, the k2 p2 ribbing of the collar and pocket tops. It's perfect, and looks amazing! Project page with all the details can be found here.
