Modification Monday: Global Warming

 
Original Pattern: Global Warming

Knitter Extraordinaire: Stephy (Ravelry ID)

Mods: Modified the pullover to be knitted top-down, changed the neckline to a scoop neck, and added a lace detail from this pattern.

What Makes This Awesome: I can't even count how many patterns I've looked at and thought, 'it would be perfect for me if it only had a different neckline/different sleeves/some more detail/less detail/etc.  This awesome pullover shows that you can really play with the framework of a good pattern- Global Warming provided the perfect backdrop for Stephy to change the neckline and experiment with a lace detail she liked from a different pattern. Customizing means no one else is going to have the same sweater as you, and this is a beautiful example of that. Plus, I love hot weather knits!! Check out her project page, here.

NICE! Stephy - I love how the lace pattern takes the sweater from casual to dressy. good work!

Very nice!! I'm going to add it to my queue right now and start thinking up of mods myself.

It's such a great mod! I already love the design of Global Warming, but the more fitted version here is so flattering.

You know what - same here! I've really liked this pattern for ages, and have never knit it because I'd prefer it with a few mods (much like the ones she chose to use).
