Knitter Extraordinaire: Caroline (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Used Paper Dolls as a pullover template, and incorporated the colourwork and texture of Catkin. Project page, with great details and notes, can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: This is one of those jaw-dropping projects that just works. Caroline’s conversion of the original shawl into a knitted tee is a striking example of a great pattern mash up. The edging of the original shawl looks flawless as a sweater yoke, and truly do look like poppies. The texture has great textured stripes that are very flattering when incorporated in a pullover, and Caroline notes that the fabric has a lot of stretch-which is exactly what you want in a garment. I am so in love with this project, I want to knit one just like it!
