Modification Monday: Na Craga Cardiganized


Original Pattern: Na Craga

Knitter Extraordinaire: Beata (Ravelry ID, )

Mods: Transformed the original pullover into a more modern cardigan, with adjustments to the neckline and shoulder construction.  Project page can be found here.

What Makes This Awesome: The original sweater is a gorgeous Aran, but very 'classic' in it's shape and cut. Beata modernized it immensely by transforming it into an oversized v-neck cardigan, while maintaining the great Aran textured stitches throughout, and lengthening the body for a drapey-er fit. The result is amazing! I wish this was hanging in my closet right now.

Wish it was part of MY wardrobe!!! I am nuts about cardigans. They are my favorite article of clothing {being cold natured year round!}. This one is so gorgeous with all the texture and I am always a lover of all things grey.

This cardigan is beyond impressive! It looks like this is one that she will wear for years to come. Great tonal choice, too.
