Modification Monday: Asymmetric Ribbed Tunic


Original Pattern: #04 Asymmetric Rib Tunic

Knitter Extraordinaire: Jennifer (Ravelry ID)

Mods: Converted sizing to fit an 8 year old, and changed construction knit in the round. Great details on the mods and construction can be found on her project page, here.

What Makes This Awesome: Kids look extra cute when they are in hand knits, and custom ones are even better. Jennifer made an excellent pattern choice for her mod- a sweater with a lot of ribbing like this guarantees a more forgiving fit, and there's room for growth not only with the stretch of the fabric but also in the length. Knitting this as a dress means it has room to grow for length, too- can always be a tunic! Knitting it in the round helped minimize finishing, and the result is fantastic.

Even putting aside the fact that kids look cute in hand knits, think of how they feel to know something was made just for them!

And that purple is so lovely, too.

Oh my goodness, how adorable is that little girl?? Adorable tunic, too, but she kinda steals the show.

Great tunic! The pose, however, just makes it 100x better! :)
