Modification Monday: Global Warming
Original Pattern: Global Warming
Knitter Extraordinaire: Stephy (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Modified the pullover to be knitted top-down, changed the neckline to a scoop neck, and added a lace detail from this pattern.
What Makes This Awesome: I can't even count how many patterns I've looked at and thought, 'it would be perfect for me if it only had a different neckline/different sleeves/some more detail/less detail/etc. This awesome pullover shows that you can really play with the framework of a good pattern- Global Warming provided the perfect backdrop for Stephy to change the neckline and experiment with a lace detail she liked from a different pattern. Customizing means no one else is going to have the same sweater as you, and this is a beautiful example of that. Plus, I love hot weather knits!! Check out her project page, here.
