Modification Monday: Corrie Fair Isle Mitts
Original Pattern: Corrie Fair Isle Vest
Knitter Extraordinaire: Caroline (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Took the colourwork chart from the vest pattern and made fair isle fingerless mitts instead. Details, including a great chart for the thumb gusset, can be found on her project page here.
What Makes This Awesome: Caroline is back on Mod Mondays with another gorgeous take on turning a big colourwork project into a smaller one. I'm so impressed are how well she scaled down the pattern, and the thumb gusset in the pattern is fantastic. Smaller colourwork projects are a great way to try out fair isle without the commitment of a huge project. And I love stranded mitts! They are beautiful.
