Modification Monday: Circle Sweater
Original Pattern: Circle Socks
Knitter Extraordinaire: Tanya (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Using the sock design as a starting point, and also used the shape of this sweater for inspiration, and the 3 stitch side seams from this sweater. Project page with great details can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: This is truly a custom sweater. I love how Tanya drew on three different patterns to create a truly original and great-fitting design, and I love the inversion of the colourwork for the sleeves, it's unexpected and fresh, and so is the great three stitch side seam, which is a great way to work the shaping in a design like this. I'm so blown away by this amazing pullover- its clever, colourful, and knock-out gorgeous.
