Modification Monday: Pomatomus Extravaganza


Original Pattern: Pomatomus

Knitter Extraordinaire: Mia (Ravelry ID, blog)

Mods: Bigger gauge, and originally started out with the idea for a pair of legwarmers that turned into sleeves, and a stunning sweater was born. Great details can be found on her project page, here.

What Makes This Awesome: I love the back story on this sweater. Mia originally wanted to knit a pair of legwarmers, but felt that they would work better as sleeves. She began working on the body, and kept reknitting it until she got the fit she wanted (got to love it when perseverence pays off). All that effort was definitely worth it- just look at that gorgeous, amazing sweater. I want one now, too!
