Modification Monday: Zig When I Should Zag

Original Pattern: Strokkur

Knitter Extraordinaire: Nelly (Ravelry ID)

Mods:  Changed the lopi style pullover into a cardigan, with a more graphic yoke. Details can be found on her project page, here.

What Makes This Awesome: I don’t know about you, but I’m always impressed when someone takes a pullover pattern and turns it into a cardigan! The original yoke design was lovely, but sometimes you want to simply a design to have just one contrasting color.  I love the bold zigzag on the yoke that Nelly went with, it looks modern and a bit edgy, which is an unusual combo in a lopi-style sweater. The result looks so wearable, and so cozy! Isn’t it fantastic?

    Totally lovely! I’m also a fan of ‘modernizing’ some classics through knitting mods – this is a nice combination of cozy wooly cardigan with hip pattern. 🙂
