Modification Monday: Collette Pullover
Original Pattern: Colette Pullover Knitter Extraordinaire: Momo (Ravelry id, Flickr id) Mods: Changed the colourwork from cat heads to a diamond motif, with a blue doggie and heart border design around the hem and cuffs. What Makes This Awesome: Over all, I love this sweater, but there are two things in particular that I really love. 1: the border design added to the cuffs and hem above the ribbing. I really like the detail, and add a certain extra something to the pullover. 2: there is meaning behind the sweater- she knit it in honour of her beloved dog, who is quite old, blind, and deaf. When I think of meaningful knits, This is the perfect example- knitting something to commemorate something important to you. You can read more about her sweet doggie (and see photos) here. She has a lot of beautiful projects, particularly when it comes to stranded colourwork. check out her project page!
