Modification Monday: Nemesis Top
Original Pattern: Date Night
Knitter Extraordinaire: Nicola (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Kept the lace yoke, changed the body to striped stockinette, and altered the fit and the sleeves. Project page with great details on the full modification process can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: Sometimes it's hard to envision wearing an all-lace top, even if you know that you can wear all sorts of things underneath it. I think Nicola's solution was a gorgeous one- keep the lace detail in the yoke, and make the body a solid stockinette. I also love her stripes, I think they are a clever way of merging the two colours, and the result is perfection!
