Modification Monday: Psychedelic Lapsus

Original Pattern: Lapsus

Knitter Extraordinaire: Marion (Ravelry ID)

Mods: Knitted the top down open cardigan bottom up instead, all in one piece. She also added button bands and a collar, and set in sleeves instead of the original drop shoulder. Even added a small pocket! Details can be found on her project page, here.


What Makes This Awesome: Sometimes you see a knitting pattern that has a design detail – in this case, the great two colour stitch design of the original design – but you want a different sort of sweater. Marion did a great job of starting with the original, but making it totally the way she wanted by customizing every step of the way. The button band and collar are a great addition, as well as the pocket – you can tell it’s just the right size for a smart phone! It looks fantastic on her, don’t you think?

    I like her version better than the original, in fact. And she chose a colour that truly compliments her. A great mod!

    Her version – while nothing I would ever wear haha – is much better than the original. The color contrast is great and all of the mods are just fantastic. What a great knitter!

    Ooh, I really like the original pattern, but these mods suit her so well! And I can’t get over that pocket!! 😀
