First is the #112 Dramatic Lace Wrap Cardigan, one of my most popular knitting patterns. The striking blue shade is really beautiful.
She used KnitPicks Andean Silk in Aegean.
"I so love working your patterns and have purchased many of them. I find the repeat charts you include with your patterns make it so easy to keep my place, especially working with the laces and cables.
Theresa also chose the same yarn, KnitPicks Andean Silk, but in Cinnamon (unfortunately, a discontinued color) for this second knitting project she sent in. This one is the #70 Lush and Lacy Cardigan knitting pattern.
"I just loved the beautiful pattern on this sweater but, living in the mountains, wanted a long-sleeved sweater.
Using your easy to understand, clearly written directions, I made a raglan sleeve with the pattern the whole length of the raglan sleeve. I also left off the pockets and created a button and buttonhole band on the front of the sweater. I get so many compliments when I wear this sweater." -- Theresa P.
It looks great as a long-sleeved cardigan with the lace panels extended! Great job!!! Yes - mods are great if you can easily transform a pattern to make it so much more wearable for where you live and how you need to dress!
Thanks, Theresa, for sharing your fabulous knitting projects!
