Modification Mondays: Francis
I bet that without out the title, you'd never guess which sweater this beautiful pullover started out being: Original Pattern: Francis Revisited Knitter Extraordinaire: Mandy (Rav id, Blog) Mods: Adjusted gauge, neckline, and sleeves to create a totally customized and very different sweater. What Makes This Awesome: This is a 3 sweater hybrid knit, which started off with the basic structure of Francis, but took on some of the style and details of two other sweaters from Phildar: The first Phildar sweater in that equation is from the Autumn 021 catalogue, and the final sweater in the addition is from Phildar Spring/Summer 019 catalogue. The resulting sweater looks beautifully designed, comfy, and flattering. And can I just say how much I love the sleeves? Love the sleeves. Love them! I think I need a sweater with sleeves like this.
