Modification Monday: Calypso Plaits and Links
Original Pattern: Plaits and Links Cardigan
Knitter Extraordinaire: Shaulaine (Ravelry ID, blog)
Mods: Added a hood with a cable design in keeping with the original pattern, added waist shaping, adjusted the sleeves to be more slim. Full details on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: I don't often see a cardigan turned into a hoodie, and this is a knock out. The original pattern features lots of lovely cables, but is quite boxy. I love Shaulaine's take on this, making it more fitted and adding the hood. It really emphasizes the great cables and details, and I love that she extended the small braided cable around the edge of the hood. It's the perfect cabled hoodie!
