Modification Monday: Leaf Yoke Top with Sleeves
Original Pattern: #14 Leaf Yoke Top
Knitter Extraordinaire: Cristina (Ravelry ID)
Mods: lengthened the yoke, added sleeves, and includd the leaf lace from the yoke on the hem and sweater cuffs. Project page with great details can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: The original pattern is a great little sleeveless summer sweater, but with the addition of long sleeves and lengthening the body, it becomes a cozy fall/winter sweater. The leaf lace detail on the yoke looks amazing on the sleeves and sweater hem and turns the sweater into such a gorgeous, feminine knit.The next time you're considering a pattern with a yoke detail for a potential modification, think of this sweater!
