Modification Monday: Ingrid Director’s Cut

Original Pattern: Ingrid Pullover

Knitter Extraordinaire: figolilo (Ravelry ID)

Mods: Figolilo added the colourwork from the hem to the cuffs of the sleeves, as well as steeked the entire pullover to make it into a cardigan! Added a button band too, of course. Details and lots of photos can be found on her project page, here.

What Makes This Awesome: Don’t you love how happy she looks in her new sweater? I personally haven’t steeked a sweater -yet!- but what a fantastic idea for transforming a pullover into a cardigan. If you find that cardigans just work for your lifestyle and wardrobe more easily, why not take a pullover pattern that you love and try it as a cardigan? I also think that this would be a brilliant idea for a pullover that turns out a bit too small. Imagine being this happy in your new cardigan – worth the trip to steektown, don’t you think?

    It’s beautiful, and I so admire people who are able to take scissors to their knits. Steeking is on my list of “one day I’ll be able to do it” techniques. She does seem so happy with it, that’s the most important really.

    I love fair isle knitting and the yoke details 🙂 I’ve made many but usually pullovers 🙂

    What a beautiful cardigan! Love the colors and great pictures. Steeking will forever be a skill that amazes me. One day I hope to try it!
