Modification Monday: Paris Night Melody
Original Pattern: Melody's Shawl
Knitter Extraordinaire: Sachiko (Ravelry ID)
Mods: The clever construction of this pattern intends for the item to be worked in the round and then cut open like a scarf- Sachiko decided to keep it 'uncut' for a modern and stunning infinity scarf. Project page can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: I love how Sachiko transformed this clever scarf into an infinity scarf, it's a great idea that could be done with lots of other scarves, as well- even if it is knit more conventionally, a provisional cast on could be used and ends could be grafted together. But this one really shines for it's simplicity, and requires a really beautiful yarn to pull it off- her choice of the Malabrigo Lace in 'Paris Night' (a truly amazing colourway) really sets off the knit. I want one just like it!
