Original Pattern: Stag Head Pullover
Knitter Extraordinaire: Lily (Ravelry Profile)
Mods: Revamped the pullover design to feature the cabled stag head on the back of a cabled cardigan instead. Great details and more photos can be found on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: This is one of those jaw-dropping knits, isn’t it? I adore how Lily used the pullover cabled stag head on the back, and then echoed the design elements and cables to create a v neck cardigan instead. She worked on this over the December holidays, and it is so beautiful and so impressive! I think I love this as a cardigan even more. It gives the lovely cables that are on the sleeves and the rest of the design a chance to get a bit of showing off in their own right, and then the dramatic stag head on the back is just so wonderful.
For those that want to give this idea a try, it would be helpful to find a cabled cardigan design in Ravelry that you like and is the same yarn weight and gauge. You could then use the existing cardigan pattern for the main body, and replace the back with the charts for the stag head pullover. With results as beautiful as this, doesn’t that sound like something you’d love to cast on right now?
