Modification Monday: Inspired


Original Pattern: Inspira Cowl

Knitter Extraordinaire: Lynn (Ravelry ID, blog)

Mods: Added a garter stitch hood, added different fair isle motifs, and a picot trim. Project page is here.

What Makes This Awesome: I love how Lynn incorporated different colourwork charts into the original design- there are so many inspiring books and designs with amazing charts, it's great to use them in a stunning colourwork caplet like this one. The garter stitch hood is a great way to add extra warmth and texture to the design. Every modification on this is spot-on and beautiful!

Almost converts me to horizontal Fair Isle stripes and ponchos (I'm short). I could cozy up in this in a heartbeat.
