Modification Mondays: Tropicana Jaden
Original Pattern: Jaden
Knitter Extraordinaire: Marceline (Rav ID, Blog)
Mods: So many! She knitted it in the round, added single crochet edging around the armholes, used the top half of this pattern for the shaping and ribbing, and did all sorts of mathematical gymnastics to customize her perfect fit.
What Makes This Awesome: It's gorgeous. The colour, the fit, the style- this is such an amazing summer knit. It look so flattering, and I bet it's comfortable. I'm so impressed by Marceline's determination to have the perfect custom tank top for summer- the way she used multiple patterns, adjusted her gauge, and really made this her own. And the results were so worth it!!! Also, you really need to check out her detailed pattern notes- they are incredibly helpful. Full details on her project page .
