Modification Monday: Paris Night Melody



Original Pattern: Melody's Shawl

Knitter Extraordinaire: Sachiko (Ravelry ID)

Mods: The clever construction of this pattern intends for the item to be worked in the round and then cut open like a scarf- Sachiko decided to keep it 'uncut' for a modern and stunning infinity scarf.  Project page can be found here.


What Makes This Awesome: I love how Sachiko transformed this clever scarf into an infinity scarf, it's a great idea that could be done with lots of other scarves, as well- even if it is knit more conventionally, a provisional cast on could be used and ends could be grafted together. But this one really shines for it's simplicity, and requires a really beautiful yarn to pull it off- her choice of the Malabrigo Lace in 'Paris Night' (a truly amazing colourway) really sets off the knit. I want one just like it!

Oh, I love this! Love the mod, love the colour (I honeymooned in Paris, why do I not have this colourway in my stash?!). May have to shamelessly copy this exact project. :)

I've never much thought of knitting an infinity scarf but this one stands out to me...not very bulky knit up in laceweight and I love the design. And an added bonus...I have some of this very yarn in this very color in my stash...hmmmm. Thanks for sharing another fabulous modification monday!
