Modification Mondays: Modified Silk Cocoon Cardigan
Original Pattern: Silk Cocoon Cardigan
Knitter Extraordinaire: Jill (Rav id)
Mods: Jill transformed the long sleeved wrap cardigan into a short sleeved, v neck pullover.
What Makes This Awesome: As gorgeous as the original pattern is (and I'm a big fan of it), wrap cardigans aren't for everyone. I personally don't look that great in them, and subsequently didn't think too much about the pattern. But this mod is so lovely- the v neck is flawless (really- I wish all my v necks looked this professional!), and the lovely stitch pattern that makes the Silk Cocoon Cardi so distinctive plays out perfectly across the shoulder and upper back.
