Modification Monday: Stella
Original Pattern: Estelle Pullover
Knitter Extraordinaire: Tracy (Rav ID)
Mods: Scaled down the size of the sweater and the yoke to provide a smaller, more customized fit, including waist shaping. Fabulous modification details can be found on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: This modification addresses something that I find problematic for myself- I haven't knit a yoked sweater because attempts in the past have yielded yokes that are out of proportion for my small shoulders (and usually have a crew neck neckline, which does me no favours at all). But Tracy made this beautiful pullover to fit her shape exactly by customizing the shaping and the length of the yoke, and tweaking the sweater in many ways to give the customized fit that works for her smaller frame. The result is amazing- I love this sweater!! It looks beautiful and comfortable, and really chic.
