I was featured on Knitted Bliss! Julie stumbled across my modified Azalea and featured it in her blog (below). After loving her Stockholm Scarf from afar, I couldn’t help but have a small fangirl moment when she reached out for permission.
Mod Monday is back! For those that were missing it, honestly there are fewer and fewer modifications that are being documented, at least where I can easily find them. So if you do come across a great knitted mod, let me know!
Let’s look at this lovely knit, shall we?
Original Pattern: Azalea
Knitter Extraordinaire: isimlikeafish (Ravelry profile, blog)
Mods: Changed the top of the original strappy tank pattern to be a raglan t-shirt instead. Details can be found on her project page, here. And a note that if you love to read and are looking for knitting with a dash of book review content, her blog is great!
What Makes This Awesome: I love the original pattern, it’s been in my queue for a while- but those little spaghetti straps, they can easily put a knitter off. But here we have such a great solution- knit the shoulders as a cap sleeve tee, and focus on the original pattern details lower down. This is a great idea for anyone who loves a design detail on a tank top, but wants a little more shoulder coverage.
This would be an especially great pattern mash up if you have a knit that you love the fit and look of the shoulders and neckline, and want to incorporate the details from a different pattern into the rest of the body. Now that the warm weather is on its way, maybe it’s time to look at modifying some knits for summer?
