Original Pattern: Cooped Up
Knitter Extraordinaire: Tanya (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Changed the pullover to a cardigan! Made it a bit smaller to fit her daughter, changed twisted ribbing for the hem and cuffs, and steeked the sweater and added a button band. Great detailed information can be found on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: The original sweater is an adorable pullover, but I love Tanya’s downsized cardigan version to fit her young daughter. She knit it in the round and adjusted the chicken placement so that they would be balanced once the sweater was steeked, which is so very important when converting a colourwork yoke pullover into a cardigan. Using twisted ribbing for the button band, collar, cuffs and hem provided a nice textural detail to the sweater. Such an impressive, beautiful cardigan!
