Modification Monday: Help Me Rondeur
Original Pattern: Rondeur
Knitter Extraordinaire: Heidi (Ravlery ID)
Mods: Adjusted the hemline from the original pattern to sit flat for a more flattering hemline, and added a lace detail. Project page can be found here with more notes.
What Makes This Awesome: This is a perfect example of how awesome it is to be a knitter and customize your clothes for a more flatting fit. Heidi wasn't comfortable with how the rounded hem of the original pattern might fall on her body, and instead chose to do a more classic hem, but added a bit of lace detail to spice things up. I love how the lace at the hem line balances out the amazing detail at the raglan 'seams' and the whole garment looks beautiful. What a fabulous customization! Plus, I had a genuine smile over her witty little project name.
