Knit Side-to-Side Cardigan
Knitter Extraordinaire: Teresa (Rav Id, blog)
Modifications: Added a seed stitch border to the entire sweater, changed button placement for closure. More details on her project page.
What Makes This Awesome: The mods don't seem that complicated, do they? Yet the simple act of adding the seed stitch edging and the button alignment makes this sweater even better than the original. Since then, almost everyone else who has knitted this project has used Teresa modifications, because they yield such lovely results. This cardigan now looks really classic and at the same time, something fresh and a bit different. I love the diagonal button closure, I think it's really flattering for a wide variety of shapes and sizes. And how amazing does her yarn choice look in this pattern? This sweater was made for a gorgeous tweed yarn. The results are perfect!
