Modification Monday: Susishaali



Original Pattern: Huntress Shawl

Knitter Extraordinaire: Susanne (Ravelry ID, blog)

Mods: Changed the original shawl pattern into a shrug, by adding sleeves with a lace design from the shawl. Project page with great details on how to do the sleeves can be found on her project page, here.

What Makes This Awesome:  I'm a big fan of turning triangular shawls into other garments, and this is a really clever one! I love that she kept the original shape, and the addition of sleeves makes it very modern and wearable. Susanne wrote great notes on creating sleeves, for those that are now inspired by this gorgeous shrug to add sleeves to a triangular shawl.  And look how great it looks with both a stunning evening dress and a casual long sleeved shirt! That's versatility.

Very, very cool and great styling! What a clever mod -- I bet the whole thing is a little easier to wear/show off as a shrug, too.

Yay! I'm so happy to see this mod here. It has to be one of my very favorites on Ravelry!!!
