Original Pattern: Journey
Knitter Extraordinaire: Carol (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Changed the pullover into a cardigan, adjusted the length, and substituted the main cable from the pattern with the Plaid Lattice pattern from “A Treasury of Knitting Patterns” by Barbara G. Walker. Details on Carol’s cardigan project can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: I’m not surprised so many people opt to modify pullovers into cardigans, so many more seasons of wear! Carol’s sweater looks amazing. She changed out the main back cable for a different cable stitch, which is a great tip- if there are certain types of cables you absolutely love, then substituting them into a cabled sweater design is much easier than working them into a plain stockinette sweater. She also lengthened the sweater considerably, and her collar mod looks wonderfully modern against the classic cables, a nice contrast. A beautifully customized sweater that is just the way you want it should always be the end goal.
