Modification Monday: Ember Sweater



Knitter Extraordinaire: Mona (Ravelry ID)

Mods:  Changed gauge, added pokets, lengthened sleeves, changed some of the yoke. Project page can be found here.

What Makes This Awesome: I really love the way Mona did these pockets, they look like a completely organic element to the design. The resulting cardi is gorgeous! This is such a beautiful way to customize your ideal sweater- finding a pattern and using it as a jumping-off point to re-evaluate the details- gauge, sleeves, lace/texture details or even overall fabric are great ways to change up a pattern.

I agree -- the pockets are an excellent detail. Pretty color, too.
