Modification Monday: Modified Castanea
Original Pattern: Castanea
Knitter Extraordinaire: Theresa ( Ravelry ID)
Mods: Left out the 6 rows of garter stitch between stitch repeats for a whole new look to this shawl. Project page can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: This modification is the result off a happy accident, as Theresa actually forgot to do the 6 rows of garter between each repeat, which gives the lace a whole new look! The result is a beautiful lace stole, and gives all of us lace knitters a new way to look at those lace charts- what could you leave out, or repeat differently? And how would it look on a grand scale? If it turns out half as lovely as this, it would be a wonderful experiment!
