Modification Monday: Girly Dashing



Original Pattern: Dashing

Knitter Extraordinaire: Mikka (Ravelry ID, blog)

Mods: Added more cables and modified the thumb gusset. More information on her project page, here.

What Makes This Awesome: When it comes to fingerless mitts, the quest for the perfect thumb gusset is always an important one. Mikka made some great changes to the gusset, and the extra cables definitely make the mitts more feminine and pretty, which I love. I never would have thought to do that with this pattern, and now I'm so inspired!! I love these mitts, they are perfect.

I like it a lot better with the extra cables. Have you added these to your list to knit? I think they would make a great gift.

This is a great pattern, I love a cable. The thumb mods are perfect, a friend of mine recently made these for her DH and added thumb mods in also.
