Modification Monday: Nightingale Cardigan
Original Pattern: Nightingale , A Cardigan for Arwen, Cardigan for Merry
Knitter Extraordinaire: Stephanie (Ravelry ID, blog)
Mods: Stephanie upsized Cardigan for Merry, used the cables from A Cardigan for Arwen, and the colourwork design from Nightingale for a one-of-a-kind cardigan/coat. Project page can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: Talk about a triple threat! Colourwork, cables, and custom design? This is spectacular. I love how Stephanie used three patterns that she liked to combine them for this incredible result. I especially love how she mixed cables and colourwork, which doesn't happen often, but is used to stunning effect here. Even the details with both a bit of colourwork and cables on the cuff is beautiful. What an amazing cardigan!
