Modification Mondays: OMA Blue Green
Original Pattern: Cable Neck Raglan Top * Knitter Extraordinaire: Melanie (Rav id, Flickr id) Mods: Adjusted the pattern to be knit in the round, adjusted length and shaping to suit her body, and used a modified linen stitch for the neck, sleeves, and hem with an applied i-cord bind off. Oh, and did I mention she also included pleats on the cap sleeves? Because she did, and damn does it ever look like that's how it was meant to be. What Makes This Awesome: Oh, so many things. Like the fact that she hand dyed the yarn that she used. And then there is the beautifully contrasting neck, sleeve trim, and hem. And the pleats looks so pretty, it's like cap sleeve perfection. Let's get a closer look at the modified linen stitch trim, shall we? Gorgeous. Just gorgeous. Project page is here. *This pattern is available to Rowan members only. I've been considering a Rowan membership for a while (thinking of asking for one for Christmas, actually), and I've learned that there are quite a few perks to being a member- free yarn, free patterns, and access to their entire archive of previous members only patterns, which is pretty remarkable. Membership info is here.
