Modification Monday: Ravine
Original Pattern: Ravine
Knitter Extraordinaire: Anna (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Changed the neckline to a scoop; customized the fit at every step, moving between sizes for bust and hip, and adding vertical dart shaping. Project page with more details can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: I love Anna's totally customized approach to this sweater, because she is adhering to what I believe to be the first and most important law of knitting a well-fitting garment: know thyself. She knew exactly what her measurements were and what sort of fit works well with her body, and she went about creating a stunning sweater that suits her to a T. Not to mention that I'm always a fan of a scoop or v neck, since it is almost always more flattering. You can't argue with these results- great fit, gorgeous knit.
