Original Pattern: Dreambird KAL
Knitter Extraordinaire: Jennie (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Bound off the shawl edges together for to turn it into a skirt, then picked up waist edge stitches with the main colour to knit waistband in the round. Project page is here.
What Makes This Awesome: Modifying a shawl into a skirt is such a great idea. I love it when I see it, but I don't often see it done with a colourwork shawl! This looks beautiful as a skirt, very feminine and somehow a little edgy at the same time. This is the kind of skirt that I bet gets Jennie compliments whenever and wherever she wears it.
