Modification Monday: Koftan Stig
Original Pattern: Vanten Stig
Knitter Extraordinaire: Kristin (Ravelry ID, blog)
Mods: Using the mitten colourwork chart for inspiration, Kristin knitting this top down cardigan with raglan increases and a rainbow palette of colour. More photos can be seen on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: This cardigan turned out so beautifully- Kristin was right to pick this wonderful, interesting stranded design (it's not a motif you see regularly in knitting!) to incorporate into the cardigan, and the extra touch of using the rainbow striping yarn for contrast makes it so much more fun and visually interesting. It looks beautiful!
