Modification Mondays: Minerva Louise

Minerva on3

Original Pattern: Onerva

Knitter Extraordinaire: Jennifer (Rav Id, Blog)

Mods:  She moved the pattern repeat so that it lined up in a logical fashion, and made the knitting process more intuitive.

What Makes This Awesome: Jennifer made a small adjustment on the pattern, and it made a huge difference for many knitters who have since knitted this shawl- her modification simplified the knitting process, while keeping the beauty of the shawl intact. The change in the alignment of the scattered YOs is subtly different, and utterly fantastic. And doesn't this shawl look amazing on her?! I love it! Fabulous details on her mod can be found on her project page.

Ooooh, that's gorgeous! (And yes, I agree that it looks amazing on her!) This is a great example of how just a small mod can make a big difference in a piece.
