Modification Monday: Lacy Top
Original Pattern: #09 Lace Dress
Knitter Extraordinaire: Amanda (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Used stockinette on the body instead of garter stitch, reworked armholes, tightened up the neckline, ans added a different trim to the hem. Project page with great instructions on the knitted edging can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: Sometimes a whole knitted dress can be a bit of a investment, not just of time, but of yarn as well. But changing it up into a beautiful top is a great alternative. This top is the perfect summer modification- it's breezy and a great mix of knitting and crochet, and I'm really impressed with the gorgeous results!
