Modification Monday: Eco Cardigan



Original Pattern: Catriona

Knitter Extraordinaire: Rachel (Ravelry ID)

Mods: Used the cabling detail from the lovely vest and converted it into a stunning long sleeved cardigan. Project page can be found here.

What Makes This Awesome:I love everything about this cardigan- the moss stitch sleeves, the deep double ribbing on the front, and the double button i-cord closure is just so brilliant. The set in sleeves look great, and there are so many really thoughtful details in this cardigan.  I've long admired the vest for it's luscious cables, but this cardigan really pushes all the right buttons for me- moss stitch, double ribbing AND cables?! I'm  in love.

I love Catriona soo much, I've been meaning to make it forever. And two days ago I saw an employee at the knitting section of John Lewis wearing it! And today this! It must be a sign :)
Great modification!

Well, once again you have lead me to becoming a better knitter. I've just finished downloading Amy Herzog's Fit to Flatter. What a wealth of knowledge this is. Thank you again, Julie.

This is one zillion times better than the original.
