Modification Monday: Baltic Burrard




Original Pattern: Burrard 

Knitter Extraordinaire: Blair (Ravelry ID, blog)

Mods: Turned the original cardigan pattern into a pullover. Project page with more information can be found here.

What Makes This Awesome: I love Blair's cardigan-to-pullover mod for selfish reasons- I prefer knitting pullovers to cardigans.  Her simple take on this is great- she knit the front same as the back until she got to where she wanted the neckline to begin, and bound off the center. Adding a lovely ribbed neck edging, and voila- lovely cardigan to perfectly gorgeous pullover.

Beautiful mod! And I too prefer pullovers to cardigan. I think the yarn she chose make the knit absolutely stand-out, as well.

That is a wonderful modification. And that blue colour is just awesome on you!
