Original Pattern: Sweater with Multicoloured Borders
Knitter Extraordinaire: Monika (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Changed the drop shoulder construction for a raglan sleeve construction instead. Project page can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: Once you get over all that stranded colourwork – drink it in! – it makes so much sense to adjust the sleeves to a raglan shape. Depending on your body type and shoulder shape, the raglan shaping can help provide a better fit in the shoulders and upper body (drop shoulders tend to add more volume of fabric around that area). The other remarkable thing about this project is that it is entirely a destashing project – ALL the yarn is leftover from other projects. Pretty amazing, right?
Reminds me of last week’s Mod Monday, also adestashing project! This is a lot of motivation to get my stash in order, stat.
