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!
