Modification Monday: Hybridity V. 3

Original Pattern: Springtime Bandit

Knitter Extraordinaire: Katie (Ravelry ID, blog)

Mods: Created a stockinette body for the shawl, and then did one leaf repeat and one edge chart repeat. Lots of great details on how to do this mod exactly can be found on her project page, here.

What Makes This Awesome: I love the simplicity of this take on the popular Springtime Bandit pattern. It looks completely fresh and new by having the stockinette body and the abbreviated lace details at the edge. The result is nothing short of gorgeous.This is a great shawl for people who like their lace not too lacy and flowery, and instead prefer something a bit more modern. If so, then this is the modification for you!
