Modification Monday: Cabletta Wannabe
Original Pattern: Cabletta Cardigan
Knitter Extraordinaire: Momo (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Transformed the original worsted weight cardigan pattern into a stunning DK weight dress. This meant customizing all the shaping within the cables, and designing the skirt to keep in pattern. Project page can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: I love the idea of knitted dress, and yet somehow the only one I own is a maternity sweater dress (store bought, I confess). But this dress is the kind of custom beauty that would have everyone who sees you asking where you got this stunning dress. I love how Momo took the original idea and ran with it.The details on the bodice flowing down into the skirt are beautiful and well thought out and look completely at home in this re-imagining of the design. Just an absolute knockout!
