Original Pattern: Tantramar Toque
Mods: Using the chart from the original hat design, Tanis improvised a child’s steeked cardigan. More details can be found on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: Sometimes playing around with colourwork can be as simple as finding a great design, and putting it on a different type of knit. Tanis used the harts from her Tantramar Toque pattern to create this great graphic design on a zipper front cardigan for her eldest son, and the results are so cozy and fantastic! Doesn’t he look so pleased with his sweater? While not everyone knit sweaters, you can also do the reverse- if you see a great colourwork design on a sweater but prefer to knit accessories, how about using the design on a hat, or a cowl? Or even mittens? Playing with the scale of a stranded design can give it a whole new look, just like this awesome cardigan.
