Modification Monday: Heliotropic Pullover
Original Pattern: Heliotropic Pullover
Knitter Extraordinaire: Isabel (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Changed the gauge to be a worsted weight instead of a DK weight, changed the fit from oversized to be more fitted, added long sleeves and the swirls on the hem. Great details on the math for the yoke and modifications can be found on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: It's funny how when you see a summery knit, it's so hard to imagine it as anything else, but Isabel has done just that: Transformed the summery, loose tee that into a gorgeous fall/winter sweater, complete with long sleeves, a heavier yarn weight, and just the right details. This sweater looks so cozy and warm, and spot-on perfect- I want one just like it now, too!
