Modification Monday: Walnut Cardigan
Original Pattern: Walnut Snood
Knitter Extraordinaire: Hiroko (Ravelry ID, blog)
Mods: Used the original snood pattern to make a cardigan, and switched from bulky weight to aran weight. For cardigan inspiration, used this pattern and this pattern for ideas. Project page can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: It's difficult to transform a snood or cowl into a foll cardigan, but Hiroko did just that. I love that she balanced out the rich texture with the stockinette portions and clean structure. It looks modern an amazing, and perfect for fall (which I know is far away, but always comes around again). Look at all those sumptuous cables- there's no denying this cardigan is a knockout.
