Modification Mondays: Luminen
Original Pattern: Luminen
Knitter Extraordinaire: Morfo (Rav Id)
Mods: Oh, so many. The body length was shortened considerably, sleeves were narrowed, lengthened, and a thumbhole was added. Snowflakes were eliminated, and the cable border was extended around the back. Changed gauge to get a better fit, and added a zipper.
What Makes This Awesome: Alright, we've all seen cabled hoodies, but I bet you haven't seen a cabled hoodie with a band around the back. This conversion from jacket to hoodie is just stunning. The sleeves are ingenious and that beautiful band is so, so perfect. A lot of people have already favourited this on Ravelry, and I'm not the least bit surprised- it's stunning, utterly wearable, and she has kindly shared her detailed notes on the sleeves and all her mods!
