Modification Monday: Paulie



Original Pattern: Paulie

Knitter Extraordinaire: sneezerville (Ravelry ID, blog)

Mods:  Changed the gauge for a lighter and airier summer cardigan, and used the contiguous sleeve method, etc. Project page can be found here.

What Makes This Awesome: Summer cardigans are a lovely wardrobe item, yet I don't have any. This knit totally makes me rethink that- it's beautiful, functional, and I love the stripes, textures, and Sneezerville's trying out the new technique for the sleeves. On top of all that, she used recycled yarn from a sweater she found at Goodwill. Such an amazing summer cardigan!
