Modification Monday: Tracy Sweater
Original Pattern: Textured Knots
Knitter Extraordinaire: Claudia (Ravelry ID)
Mods: used the great stitch design of the original blanket pattern to create a totally different pullover inspired by it. Her project page with more photos can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: I love the details, the way the cables for the knots are used to elongate the shape of the sweater for a flattering fit. it would have been easy to go a bit overkill and have knots all over from cuff to neck to hem, but the design elements are right on key. It's a stunning knit, and also pretty impressive to turn a blanket into a sweater!
