Modification Monday: Omelet Sunbrella
Original Pattern: Omelet
Knitter Extraordinaire: Yvonne (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Using the 4 gore shawl as a starting point, Yvonne doubled it up and added beads to create this stunning sumbrella. Project page with great details on her modification can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: First of all, I love the 'hey, I could do that!' approach that Yvonne had on transforming a shawl pattern into a parasol. Lace shawls are lovely, but there is something magical about this beautiful knit- doubling it up and adding beading and then adding all that loveliness to an umbrealla's mechanics is really the stuff of awesome, fearless knitting. I'm blown away.
