Modification Monday: Catkin Phoenix


Original Pattern: Catkin

Knitter Extraordinaire: Katrin (Ravelry ID)

Mods: Using the shawl pattern for inspiration, Katrin created a top-down raglan short-sleeved cardigan.  Project page with great details on the modifications can be found here.

What Makes This Awesome: Not only do I love the colours, I think it was genius to use the shawl as inspiration for a gorgeous summer cardigan. The way she arranged the design to be flattering around the waist and hips, as well as the excellent inversion of the colours in the droplet/stripe sections are truly remarkable. This is one impressive knit!!

Oooh, those colours are really striking. And I totally agree, the colour inversion along the bottom is really neat.
