Modification Monday: Peter's Baby Sweater
Original Pattern: Peony Sweater
Knitter Extraordinaire: Tilde (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Changed the adult-sized pattern into a baby sweater, using a baby sweater structure in the same book. Project Page can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: I love seeing adult patterns changed into baby and kid knits, but this is particularly interesting because of the size of the design- the peony flowers are large and intricate, and I feel like their beauty has more emphasis on such a small sweater, because you see the detail of each bloom so clearly. I also love the balance of how the design is thoroughly carried around the body of the sweater, and choosing textured sleeves instead of patterned sleeves is a smart choice. Every decision Tilde made on this sweater is perfection!
