Modification Monday: Be A Pizzly


Original Pattern: Camilla Pullover

Knitter Extraordinaire: Stéphanie (Ravelry ID, blog)

Mods: Turned the pullover into a sweater dress, upsized the yarn weight to bulky, added pockets, an shaping. Project page can be found here.

What Makes This Awesome: I love how the yarn choice really made a huge difference in the look of this sweater dress- the bulky, fuzzy yarn makes this look so wintery and cozy, and yet still really chic. I love the added pockets, there is something extra fun and comfy about wearing a dress or skirt that has pockets, and Stéphanie kept the garter look so that they blend in great and don't add visual bulk. It's gorgeous!

She did a great job with this! I too love the bulky yarn choice here - it really shines in this dress.

That is awesome! I don't think I would ever be able to knit a sweater dress. I am yet to knit myself a succesful cardigan or jumper that I actually wear.
