Modification Monday: Taschenpulli
Original Pattern: Brea Bag
Knitter Extraordiniare: Sannah (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Knitted four of the original pattern and assembled into a sweater, adding ribbing for the sleeves, hem, and neck. Details on her project page, which can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: I have never imagined turning a bag into a sweater, but holy smokes, does it ever work. I am absolutely in love with Sannah's beautiful sweater-the cabled design of the original pattern looks like snowflakes when laid out flat (as opposed to being sewn together to make the bag). A bit of seaming and a lot of ribbing makes this sweater my ideal winter sweater- cozy, easy to wear, and totally gorgeous.
