Modification Monday: Spring Skirt


Original Pattern: Heijastuksia

Knitter Extraordinaire: Barbara (Ravelry ID)

Mods:  Used the great stranded sock pattern as inspiration for an ombre skirt, which was acheived using multiple skeins of ombre yarn and alternating skeins every 3rd row. Details and more amazing photos can be found on her project page, here.

What Makes This Awesome: This skirt is drop dead gorgeous for so many reasons- I love the ombre effect, I love the stranded design at the hem, the great shape of the skirt and the perfect looking zipper (just look at it!)  at the back- the knitting is amazing, but the whole garment construction blows my mind. It's a work of art!
