Modification Monday: Sweater #2


Original Pattern: Maeby

Knitter Extraordinaire: Caitlin (Ravelry ID)

Mods:  Altered the original sweater to eliminate the elbow patches, drawstring at neck and kangaroo-style pouch pocket. Project page here.

What Makes This Awesome: I love how much dressier this beautiful funnel neck looks when it's stripped down to it's basic elements. Caitlin did a great job of making sure the beautiful colourwork did all the talking, and the final sweater is stunning!  This has me rethinking some patterns I've ruled out in the past for being too casual (I like knits I can wear on days other than the weekend). If it leads to a sweater like this, I'm sold!
