Modification Monday: Modified Gemini


Original Pattern: Gemini

Knitter Extraordinaire: Tanis (Ravely ID, blog)

Mods: Added sleeves, and changed the mesh lace neckline from front to back, and alternated skeins to use a  beautifully bright and varied hand dyed yarn. More information on her project page here.

What Makes This Awesome: Gemini is already a great pattern that lends itself well to mods, But I love this reversed, back-to-front take with the 3/4 sleeves.Apparently this was a bit of a happy accident, as reversing it was a product of a slightly more  visible line down the centre where the skeins were alternated, and Tanis decide to make that the back. It turned out great- I love the mesh detail at the front of the neckline! Looks casual, cool, and utterly amazing.

It looks GREAT, and I've bookmarked it and ordered a variegated yarn to make one with the same mods!
