Modification Monday: Lucy in the Sky with Triangles


Original Pattern: Lucy in the Sky

Knitter Extraordinaire: Katy (Ravelry ID)

Mods: Changed the textured stitch pattern to a colourwork design using navy and white triangles reminiscent of sailing flags (also used adorable red anchor buttons to carry on the nautical feel!). Details can be found on her project page, here

What Makes This Awesome: It's not often I see a modification that changes a textured knit into a colourwork knit, and this cardigan is so perfect- I love the thoughtful little details of the thin white stripe trimming the cuffs and hem, keeping the sleeves solid navy, and  the fantastic red buttons for contrast. Using the colour palette of navy and white keeps the cardigan totally classic, and the result is fun and really stylish.

That's a great mod - I love how she made the leap from texture to colourwork.
