Modification Monday: Chhattisgarh

Original Pattern: Water for the Elephants

Knitter Extraordinaire: Lisa (Ravelry ID)

Mods: Using the colourwork chart from the original sock pattern, created a skirt with a pleated hem. Great details can be found on her project page, here.

What Makes This Awesome: I'm super impressed not only with this amazing colourwork skirt, but with Lisa's planning and working out the stitch repeats for the size needed in advance of casting on. Having the motifs repeated on a large knit like this really underscores the exotic style of the design, and Lisa's creativity with the hem (do you see those little inverted pleats?!) blows my mind.
