Modification Monday: Asymmetric Ribbed Tunic
Original Pattern: #04 Asymmetric Rib Tunic
Knitter Extraordinaire: Jennifer (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Converted sizing to fit an 8 year old, and changed construction knit in the round. Great details on the mods and construction can be found on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: Kids look extra cute when they are in hand knits, and custom ones are even better. Jennifer made an excellent pattern choice for her mod- a sweater with a lot of ribbing like this guarantees a more forgiving fit, and there's room for growth not only with the stretch of the fabric but also in the length. Knitting this as a dress means it has room to grow for length, too- can always be a tunic! Knitting it in the round helped minimize finishing, and the result is fantastic.
