Modification Monday: Zigzag Gloves


Original Pattern: Helix Socks

Knitter Extraordinaire: Onkuri (Ravelry ID, Blog)

Mods: Transformed the pretty spiralling stitch sock pattern into a fabulous pair of gloves with a zig zag design instead. Project details on her project page, here.

What Makes This Awesome: I'm blown away by this modification! I can easily see how a sock pattern can be transformed into some awesome fingerless mitts with a few small and clever tweaks, but this is so creative- ditching the spiral design and changing up the direction so that the zig zag emerges, and turning them into gloves where each finger has a zig zag as well... KABOOM! Mind. Blown.

That takes real talent because I can't imagine it's easy to turn a sock pattern into a five-fingered one.

These are fabulous! I hardly have the patience to finish a pair of socks, let alone turn them into awesome gloves like this. Good find!

Glove seem like they would take forever to knit, but they are so delicate and lovely. Great find!

So neat! I love the look of gloves - their design sort of frightens me, though!
