Modification Monday: Wasabi Atelier
Original Pattern: Atelier
Knitter Extraordinaire: Nicola (Ravely ID)
Mods: Changed from DK to laceweight, added back darts, applied i cord edgings and smaller pockets. Project page with details can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: I love it when people change the weight of a knit to the point where it changes the whole look- the pattern takes on a delicate featherweight quality with such a light yarn, and I love Nicola's solution to add waist shaping with back darts. Shrinking down the size of the pockets was also a thoughtful mod, since changing the weight to make it more delicate means that the bigger pockets would have easily overwhelmed the sweater. It's perfection!
