Modification Monday: Royale Sans Sleeves
Original Pattern: Royale
Knitter Extraordinaire: Corinne (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Eliminated the sleeves to make a vest, changed the location of increases and decreases for waist shaping. Project page can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: A richly textured vest like this is a wardrobe classic, and Corinne has the prettiest one I've seen in a while. I don't think enough people consider turning a sweater into a vest, despite it being a fairly easy modification. A great pattern like Royale modifies into a vest quite well- the original pattern has waist shaping and set in sleeves, so it's easy to eliminate the sleeves and have a great vest. And you don't even need as much yarn as you would for a full sweater. Wouldn't you love this stunning vest in your wardrobe?
