Modification Monday: Bellevue Cardigan
Original Pattern: Bellevue Cardigan (fingering weight)
Knitter Extraordinaire: Jane (blog, Ravelry ID)
Mods: Adjusted the length of the sleeves to make them much longer, while keeping the lace pattern. Details on how she did this are on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: I'm amazed at how changing one thing can change the look of a garment so much. I don't like short sleeved cardigans(the exception being capped sleeves) , but lengthening sleeves that have a lace detail in them can be a lot more challenging than just knitting a bit more length in the middle. Jane did a fantastic job lengthening with the lace, and the cardigan looks more chic and modern for it. Beautiful result!
