Modification Monday: Hedgehog Love Cardi
Original Pattern: Hedgehog Love Scarf
Knitter Extraordinaire: Samantha (Ravelry ID, blog)
Mods: Wanted to create a baby sweater and have the design feature four sets of the the hedgehogs, so created a top down raglan baby sweater (no pattern!) and customized the gauge to make sure the chart would fit the way she wanted. Project page can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: I love that Samantha basically designed her own baby sweater! Using the hedgehog charts as a jumping off point, she customized a great little raglan and adjusted the gauge so that the charts would line up the way she wanted- with one set of hedgehogs on each side of the front, and four ont he back. I love the way she made this- it's a fabulous baby sweater design!
