Modification Monday: Modified Stripes To Keep mMe Warm
Original Pattern: Stripes to Keep Me Warm
Knitter Extraordinaire: Islefin (Ravelry ID, Blog)
Mods: Added a split neck line and a button placard, as well as added length.
What Makes This Awesome: Having a button band at the neckline was a brilliant idea for allowing more options for how warm you want to be while wearing this lovely caplet. The jogless stripes look amazing, and how perfect is that one lovely dark stripe near the bottom? I love how the colour is echoed in the button choice. I tend to wear a lot of jeans and long sleeve t-shirts, and this could easily be thrown on top and you have a gorgeous outfit that's perfect for this time of year.
