Modification Monday: Un-Iced
Original Pattern: Iced
Knitter Extraordinaire: Isabelle (Ravelry ID, Blog, Podcast)
Mods: Changed the gauge and added length to turn a cozy cardigan into a cuddly knitted jacket. Project page is here.
What Makes This Awesome: I don't think it ever would have occurred to me how wonderfully simple this modification could be- knitting a cardigan at a super bulky gauge and making it longer to turn it into a chic knitted jacket. Plus, the super bulky gauge emphasizes the great texture of the garter stitch borders. This looks gorgeous as a jacket! And I don't yet have a knitted jacket for the crisp fall and spring days- maybe I'll have to make an Un-iced, too!
