Modification Monday: The Modified Beatnik
Original Pattern: Beatnik
Knitter Extraorinaire: Jenny (Ravelry ID, blog)
Mods: Turned the pullover into a cardigan, lengthened the sleeves, changed the cable design on the front peices, Project page can be found here, and great details on the mods can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: I love it when knitters turn cardigans into pullovers and pullovers into cardigans. This sweater looks stunning as a cardigan, and the differently cabled fronts are perfectly at home in this design. The longer sleeves are ideal for a cabled cardigan like this, and the whole effect is stunning. I love how Jenny detailed the mods so thoroughly on her blog- she even gives a step-by-step on the fronts (which she totally created herself). Such a beautiful cardigan!
