Modification Monday: Latvian Cowl
Original Pattern: Baby Blanket Latvian Garden
Knitter Extraordinaire: Raquel (Ravelry ID, blog)
Mods: Transformed the stranded baby blanket into a beautiful cowl. Great details to follow her modifications can be found on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: I'm a huge fan of taking a great colourwork chart and using it for other items, and starting with something a bit smaller can make colourwork easier to tackle. This great cowl looks beautiful and is no doubt super toasty warm, thanks to the stranded colour work. Look how cozy Raquel looks in the photo above! Bonus- It looks very fetching on the canine set, too:
