Modification Monday: Purple Mystery Top
Original Pattern: 198 yards of Heaven
Knitter Extraordinaire: Sachiko (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Created a top-down raglan top based on the original shawl design, and added a great cowl. Project page is here.
What Makes This Awesome: A shawl into a top, people! Holy cow! This is a beautiful way to incorporate a lace pattern you admire into a totally different garment, for those that aren't that keen on triangular shawls. I find this so inspiring- the top looks really modern and wearable, and still has the great lace design of the shawl. What a fantastic idea!
