Modification Monday: Ombre Striped Long Cardi

Original Pattern: Ombre

Knitter Extraordinaire: Teresa (Ravelry ID)

Mods: Made the cardigan much longer (including the sleeves), eliminated ribbing at bottom, added wonderful pockets. Great details on all her modifications can be found on her project page, here.

What Makes This Awesome: I love this cardigan! It is a totally new look for the design, adding a cozy, casual dimension to it. I love how Teresa found inspiration for the pockets from a pattern she had knitted previously, and the extra-long length and sleeves make seem like the perfect solution for any weekend. It looks like the kind of sweater that makes you feel amazing. I've knit the original, but I've just put it back in my queue, to make again- and I think I'll be using this knit as inspiration!

Great mod! I love the pockets and the longer length totally switches up the look and makes it into the perfect weekend cardi.

That looks SO cozy. I love the mods she used and think the lack of ribbing make for an interesting finish.

...and who doesn't love a good pocket?
