Modification Monday: Turning Leaves

Original Pattern: Adhara

Knitter Extraordinaire: Sarah (Ravelry ID)

Mods: Changed the triangular shawl to a crescent shape, and used two gradient yarns. Great details on the modification can be found on her project page, here

What Makes This Awesome: It is not very often I see a shape change on a shawl at all, but I love this change to a crescent. The modification is small, but has big impact- the crescent shape is a modern and casual take on the classic triangular shawl, and it's a great change (or even from a crescent to a triangular shape!)  to make on a pattern that has a short row count in the lace repeat. And with the original two-colour pattern, having it knit in two gradient yarns means it looks like it's a lot more complex. The results are stunning!

This is such a great mod, I really love how the gradient yarns make it look like she spent hours fussing over her colours.
