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.

The three stitch seam is wonderful - that line gives it such a finished and polished look. I might have made it just a touch looser so I could wear something under it but then again, I'm not built like her so who knows... lol.

Tanya's one of the best knitters on Ravelry, in my opinion. Her color combinations always rock too!

I just discovered your blog. I love the projects, photography, and the overall design. I am envious of the steel mug I saw in one of your previous posts.
