Modification Monday: Zigzag Gloves

Original Pattern: Helix Socks

Knitter Extraordinaire: Onkuri (Ravelry ID, Blog)

Mods: Transformed the pretty spiralling stitch sock pattern into a fabulous pair of gloves with a zig zag design instead. Project details on her project page, here.

What Makes This Awesome: I’m blown away by this modification! I can easily see how a sock pattern can be transformed into some awesome fingerless mitts with a few small and clever tweaks, but this is so creative- ditching the spiral design and changing up the direction so that the zig zag emerges, and turning them into gloves where each finger has a zig zag as well… KABOOM! Mind. Blown.
