Modification Monday: Pomegranate
Original Pattern: Buttercup
Knitter Extraordinaire: Larisa (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Added vertical lace to the body, added lace and buttons to the sleeves, and reduced increases for the boy for less of an A-line silhouette. Project page with great mod details can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: The original Buttercup pattern is a lovely and simple top that allows for a lot of experimentation, as Larisa shows us with her gorgeous take on the pattern. I love the vertical lace she chose- it's simple but great visual detail. And the sleeves! I love the sleeves, the buttons are perfection. I also love that shoe reduced the A-line to make a better fit. Sometimes I've shied away from A-line sweater patterns because they don't really suit me, but Larisa shows that it's easy to adjust for a better fit, with beautiful results!
