Modification Monday: Wonderful Wallaby with Robots

 
Original Pattern: Wonderful Wallaby

Knitter Extraordinaire: Blanchois (Ravelry ID)

Mods: Changed the pullover hoodie to a zipper cardigan, changed the hood shaping and added colourwork.

What Makes This Awesome: I'm pretty sure the robots say it all- this sweater is awesome! I love how she altered this great little hoodie with the contrasting colour zipper and the great colourwork. It just makes this sweater that much more fun and interesting. Little boy knits can be so much fun, and think this sweater shows that perfectly. Project page with details can be found here.

The Wonderful Wallaby is my favorite pattern by far! I wish I was a more experienced knitter so I could make cool modifications like this one :)
