Modification Monday: Idlewood +
Original Pattern: Idlewood
Knitter Extraordinaire: Traci (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Added lots of colourwork, eliminated the pocket, added ribbing to sleeve and body hems. Project page is here.
What Makes This Awesome: I was blown away by this gorgeous sweater when I first saw it- the colourwork is stunning, and I love the muted palette Traci used to create it. The charts are from Elizabeth Zimmermann's The Opinionated Knitter, Leaflet #3, and I think the whole combination is just dynamite. I want to a sweater just like this now! Looks perfect for layering.
