Original Pattern: Fox in the Snow Mittens
Knitter Extraordinaire: Nele (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Using the stranded fox design from the mittens, Nele incorporated it into a lightweight cardigan. Details can be found on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: This stunning sweater is exactly why I do Modification Monday posts: Nele saw this previous Mod Monday of the awesome modified fox baby sweater, and decided that she needed to have a grown up version. A modification of a Modification Monday? Heck yeah!!! And Nele nailed this grown up version perfectly- I love the bright highlighter yellow at the cuff, the light grey stripes between the fox heads are subtle but interesting, and the proportions of the overall cardigan (one she made up!) are just right. This is the kind of sweater that whenever you wear it in public, someone asks you where you got it. And then Nele gets to say, ‘Oh, this? I made it.’ And the person who asked is utterly crushed because they don’t knit and now they know just how terrible that really is. So… in summary: knitting is awesome, and this sweater is super awesome.
