Psst: Knitty.com's blog had a little feature about Mod Mondays, go check it out!
Original Pattern: Ambrosia
Knitter Extraordinaire: Onkuri (Ravelry ID, blog)
Mods: Change the gauge from worsted to DK, bottom up instead of top down, changed the neckline and hems, lengthened sleeves, and increased the size of the cabled fronts.
What Makes This Awesome: I love Onkuri's mods, she has a way of taking a beautiful pattern and finding a way to strip it down to the key elements, and rebuild for the most flattering details possible. I love the shallower neckline, it emphasizes the thicker cables and clean lines through the body that end with i-cord hems, which finish off the smooth look. The result is stunning!
