Modification Monday: Montague

Original Pattern: Montague Bulky Lace Vest 

Knitter Extraordinaire: Blair (Ravelry ID, blog)

Mods: Lengthened the body, added sleeves, shortened the collar ribbing,  and added a single button closure. Details can be found on her project page, here

What Makes This Awesome: I guess since I'm not much of a vest person, I didn't give the original pattern much thought when I first saw it. Then I saw Blair's gorgeous mauve sweater, and I was suddenly dying to find out what pattern she used! I love the added sleeves to this to a beautiful bulky cardigan- they look like they fit perfectly and are in tune with the rest of the design. Adding a button for closure gives the sweater a little more warmth on chilly days. Now that I've seen Blair's, I want a cardigan just like this!

I'm with you on not being big on vests, but she's done a great job with the mods. It's perfect.

I think it looks better as a cardigan than a vest, well just like you I'm not really into vests
