Modification Monday: The Wool Peddler
Original Pattern: Wool Peddler's Shawl
Knitter Extraordinaire: Maria (Ravelry ID, blog)
Mods: Using a simlpe raglan sweater as a starting point, Maria incorporated her the lace from the original shawl pattern. Project page can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: I'm a big fan of taking a lace shawl and transforming it into a sweater or top, because it's such a great way for a knitter to take their favourite elements and incorporate it into something totally new. Here, Maria took the simple design of the shawl and turned it into a classicly beautiful pullover. I love it, it looks like the knd of sweater I'd pull on all the time.
