Modification Monday: Recycled Wallpaper


Original Pattern: Wallpaper Hat

Knitter Extraordinaire: Amy (Ravelry ID)



Mods: Transformed the fair isle hat pattern into a gorgeous open-front cardigan with a shawl collar.


What Makes This Awesome: She turned a hat into a cardigan. How much more awesome does it get? This isn't the first modification of the Wallpaper hat that has been featured on this series, but I couldn't resist another. I guess it goes to show that this hat is seriously inspiring. I love the design of this- the rounded fronts, the great fair isle design is used beautifully, and the shawl collar is a lovely touch. I've really been loving cardigans that are meant to be worn open, and this just takes the cake. Details on her modification can be found on the project page, here.

Was this the same motif as a little girls dress you featured? There's something about that wallpaper design that is so appealing! The design of the sweater is fantastic as well!
