Knitter Extraordinaire: Misa (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Misa used the Autumn Rose colourwork pullover as the road map, but substituted the charts for the Child’s Panel Gansey. Details can be found on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: Two things are happening in this sweater that I love seeing- a knitter taking a child’s design and turning it into something grown up, and switching out colourwork charts. Misa was starting from a position of strength by using a sweater pattern that was already designed for colourwork and in fingering weight, so it was easier to switch out the charts. Fingering weight makes it easier because when substituting charts, sometimes your stitch count isn’t going to be the same as in the original pattern. If you are using worsted weight and need to add 4 stitches or reduce 4 stitches, you might be changing the ease of that garment by an inch or more. In fingering weight, the size shift will not be so dramatic, so it’s easier to make slight adjustments. I love how the charts look in this scoop neck sweater- just utterly beautiful!
