Modification Monday: Boreal Wannabe



Original Pattern: Boreal

Knitter Extraordinaire: Momo (Ravelry ID)

Mods: Changed sweater length, fit, neckline, added a pocket and altered the chart for length. Project page can be found here.

What Makes This Awesome:  This mod is a trifecta of modified awesomeness- fit, neckline, and added detail (that pocket!). The sleeker fit is especially chic with the tunic length, and the garter stitch cowl neck is wonderfully cozy for the cold weather. Changing the chart so that it ended higher up the body is also quite flattering. Momo often modifies her knits and there are many on her project page to choose from, but I particularly liked this tunic, which seemed modified in a way that made it feel more classic and timeless. And how cute is her little one peeking out from under her arm in the top photo?!

I really like the original pattern, but that neckline just puts it over the top for me. I do love a cowl!
