Modification Monday: Skirt for Mistic



Original Pattern: Panache

Knitter Extraordinaire: Olga (Ravelry ID)

Mods: Using the shawl as a starting point, Olga created lace circle skirt with a fitted waist, worked in three colours for an ombre effect. Project can be found here.

What Makes This Awesome: I love it when people use a lace shawl as inspiration for a different garment, and this skirt is a drop-dead gorgeous example of that kind of modification.  I love Olga's decision to have the ombre effect (so summery!) and the mohair looks rich and luxurious. Truly, a stunningly beautiful, one-of-a-kind knit!

I am knitting a semi circular shawl now and had comments that it would make a nice skirt but never actually thought about doing it. Maybe I should! This is lovely!

1) That skirt looks amazing: the yarn choice, colors and style all working together to make a dreamy, flowing garment.
2) OMG high heels on rocks? 0_o

I have never once like nor wanted to knit a skirt, until now. That is probably the prettiest skirt I have EVER seen! I love the triple color effect as well. So pretty!!

This is absolutely stunning. I would like to learn more of how this is done. Time for some research. If anyone has any pointers I'd love to hear them. I've never thought to do this before. It's so hot here where I am this would be a perfect summer knit!

Wow! So pretty. I have turned a shawl into a poncho for my little girl. That is as ambitious as I have gotten. THis is just beautiful.
