Modification Monday: Chimera




Original Pattern: Labrinyth

Knitter Extraordinaire: Jamie (Ravelry Id, Blog)

Mods: Revamped the original simple stockinette pullover into a cable and lace sweater with shorter sleeves. Project page is here.

What Makes This Awesome: This is such a gorgeous sweater, it could practically be a pattern in it's own right.  Jamie kept the neckline and overall fit of the body of the original pattern, but changed up everything else. The leaf lace in the front panel adds great detail, I love the extra cable down the sleeves, too! The whole sweater is stunning. I want one!

wow! Perfect sweater. I love everything about it. It has a lot of the same elements as the sweater I'm working on right now, Julissa (cables, lace, sleeve detail) I just can't get enough!

What a beautiful mod. Somehow, I imagine that this design/pattern looks flattering on every body type. Another one to queue!!

I love people who do this to a pattern. What a perfect modification. It looks amazing. All I can think is she must have special brains.
