Modification Monday: Shifting Sands Cardi

Original Pattern: Shifting Sands

Knitter Extraordinaire: Onkuri  (Ravelry ID, blog)

Mods: Turned the scarf pattern (oh yes, you read that correctly- a scarf) into a cardigan. Great details can be found on her blog post here, and her project page, here.

What Makes This Awesome: So many clever things about this knit. I love that she fully incorporated the scarf into the cardigan. The scarf portion is divided into three sections for the collar and neck, which is a clever way to do the shaping. I even love the colour!! such a beautiful knit.

I saw this on Ravelry a couple of weeks ago and couldn't believe how a scarf pattern could become such a beautiful cardigan.

One of my favourite "Modification Monday's" I think.

I really, really love the way that collar adds such interest to an otherwise simple cardigan. She is a mod genius!
