Modification Monday: Wallpaper Jumper




Original Pattern: Wallpaper Hat

Knitter Extraordinaire: Annika (Rav ID, blog)

Mods: Used the wallpaper hat pattern for the body of the sweater, and Elizabeth Zimmermann percentage system for the yoke and created this lovely children's pullover.

What Makes This Awesome:  I love how she gave her creativity free rein and reinterpreted a hat pattern into a sweater by using EZ's top down method, and she didn't stop there- the stripes are such a playful and sweet addition. I love this kiddie sweater! It's pretty and fresh. Project page with details can be found here.

It's a real nice kid sweater (and would look equally good for an adult I think)! Love the motif and the color! Perfect!
