Modification Monday: Red & Blue
Original Pattern: b16-10 Jacket with raglan sleeves in pattern
Knitter Extraordinaire: Hanna (Ravelry ID, blog)
Mods: Changed the design of the fair isle details, added them to the cuffs and hem, as well as knitted it in the round and steeked. More details on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: I love Hanna's bright, happier re-visioning of this beautiful baby sweater. I love that she chose to do her own fair isle design, which can be tricky to balance, but all 4 colours she chose work wonderfully together. She also chose to carry the designs down to the hem and cuffs fo the sweater, and you've got to respect someone who knits it in the round and steeks even when the pattern doesn't call for it- that must be why those button bands look so perfect! Utterly flawless.
