Modification Monday: Antler Audrey
Original Pattern: Audrey in Unst
Knitter Extraordinaire: Nikki (Rav ID)
Modifications: Charted out and inserted lace panels from two Barbara Walker stitch dictionaries, modifying the cardigan to accomodate the lace inserts. Project details can be found on the project page.
What Makes This Awesome: Nikki notes that she has a long history with gauge issues, and found that lace in garments provides a more forgiving fit. She loved the Audrey in Unst pattern, but after receving the wonderful gift of the Barbara Walker Stitch Dictionaries (all 4 of them!) she decided to trying something more adventurous. And her adventure paid off- the cardigan is beautiful. I love the lace she chose, and I'm also really impressed with how she recognized a trouble point with her knitting and figured out a wonderfully creative solution. What an amazing cardi!
