Modification Monday: Cherry Basket Picovoli


Eek! Got my dates screwed up for scheduled posting, and accidentally posted this on Sunday. Some lucky people got a sneak preview!

Original Pattern: Picovoli

Knitter Extraordinaire: Heidi (Ravelry ID)

Mods:  Added the 'cherry basket' lace and bobble stitch pattern to the yoke of the original picovoli tee pattern, and added a bobble rib hem. Details can be found here.

What Makes This Awesome: When you have a great simple design, there are absolutely no limits to the varieties of add on or changes you can make- it's like a perfect, blank canvas.  I love the cherry basket stitch pattern, it's so amazing to see an interesting stitch like this incorporated into such a lovely, wearable tee. This looks like such an awesome summer knit!

For a second you freaked me out and I thought I was late for work! I'm glad we're still Sunday ;-) The motif is a great modification! I also love the color she used. It's a very nice project!

I am still working on my first cup of coffee when my heart jumped, fearing my kids were late for school! Lovely modification though, thanks for finding it.

#1: Isn't it Sunday? Did I miss something?
#2: I really love those mods! Usually designers create lace patterns that pretty much guarantee that you have to wear a t-shirt under it, but this one doesn't show too much. Adorable!

I love your blog! Modifications Monday is my favorite. I never seem to end up following the directions on patterns so your blog validates me and shows me how much better I can do with these modifications.

Great feature! That shaping is to die for, so flattering!

Oh, very cool! What a pretty pattern, that Cherry Basket motif. And a great addition to the top.

That is a great mod! I started Picovoli way back when, but I was knitting it too big (because of the yarn I was using). I'd like to give it another try. It's such a great basic pattern!

Wow so pretty! I am currently knitting something similar but I like the front of this much better! I may have to incorporate!

I like it - a nice simple little addition makes such a difference to the pattern!
