Original Pattern: Lempster
Mods: Adjusted sleeve length, waist shaping, smaller neckline, added a split to the hemline with a button detail. Project page can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: This is Sarah’s second time knitting this sweater, which meant she was in a great position to make modifications- knititng a pattern for a second time can really show you what sort of changes you might want to make to improve upon the pattern and fit your needs exactly. I love this short sleeved version- it’s great for layering and looks very modern, and adjusting the neckline and adding waist shaping was the perfect customization. I especially like the modern split hem, with the slightly long back than front- very popular in modern sweaters that you see in stores, and makes this pattern even more fresh and timely.
