Modification Monday: Vintage Cotton Candy
Original Pattern: Amber
Knitter Extraordinaire: Anat (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Made the slouchy, oversized cowl neck short sleeved pattern into a lovely slim fitting, long sleeved sweater with a slight boatneck feel to it. Sleeves were done in stockinette. Fantastic details are on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: I'm a big fan of the 'macro' effect lace takes on when knit on bigger needles with chunky yarn. Something so graphic and wonderful about it, and this sweater is no exception. The slim fit and stockinette sleeves are fantastic, and the new neckline makes this look like a completely different sweater. It's gorgeous!
