Modification Monday: Latvian T-Shirt


Original Pattern: Girly Top

Knitter Extraordinaire: Betsy (Ravelry ID)

Mods: Revamped the simple stockinette top to feature a beautiful colourwork design, and also adjusted the neckline and sizing. Details and more photos can be found on her project page, here.

What Makes This Awesome: This is such an inspiring knit. The original pattern is a very simple, no colourwork pullover; and provided the perfect template to explore this lavish colourwork design. And the result is just utterly beautiful!

How stunningly creative - a LOT of work to figure out but so worth it and so unique

So amazing. I can't even finish a colorwork hat, so I can't imagine the time and energy that went into making this!

Oh that's wonderful, I just started a color work sweater with short sleeves (my preference over a vest) -- I may have to unknit what I've done so far and use this pattern - it looks ideal for my plans!
