Modification Monday: Ms. Bennett-Darcy
Original Pattern: Mr. Darcy
Knitter Extraordinaire: Cheryl (Rav ID, website)
Mods: Altered this men's pullover to fit and flatter a feminine shape, using her hip measurement as a basis for her calculations.
What Makes This Awesome: I loved this sweater when I first saw it. The texture and classic shape (along with the prefect sweater name!) were so attractive, but I never stopped to think if I could change it up to suit me. I'm so impressed that Cheryl took the pattern and modified it to make a gorgeous, flattering sweater for herself. It looks beautiful! It's so chilly here today, and I'd love to slip into a cozy sweater just like this. Awesome project guidelines on how to modify any men's sweater into a smaller woman's sweater can be found here.
