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!

Love this! Especially the wide band of ribbing at the bottom. So flattering!

You're absolutely right - she used just the right amount of knots in the blanket-to-sweater design :)
