Modification Mondays: Broadway Modified

Original Pattern: Broadway

Knitter Extraordinaire: Suzanne (Rav ID)

Mods: Customized the pattern to accommodate very different gauge, as well as adding more increases and decreases for a better fit; and  carried on the eyelet pattern through the upper portion of the sweater.


What Makes This Awesome: What I love about this knit (besides the fact that it is flat-out gorgeous) is that it is so customized. Suzanne revamped many of the details but kept the overall look and feel of the garment. The eyelets on the top are a fantastic detail, and the fit looks spot-on perfect. Fantastically full details are on her project page, here.

I love your point about the value of modifying for fit/gauge without abandoning the original pattern!

I would have never looked at this pattern. her modifications are great and yet the overall garnment has not really changed. very clever!
