Saturday Stitches

{missed last week’s? here it is!}
Saturday Stitches was inspired by the knitter. It’s amazing to see a finished project that totally changes the way you look at the original pattern, and that’s what Saturday Stitches is all about – showing off those projects. As always, click on the photo to be taken to the knitter’s Ravelry project page, and click on their name to go to their Ravelry page and add them as a friend! All photos are property of the knitter.
Veera’s Golden Wheat Cardigan pattern is beautiful. She’s a great designer. But there was always something about this design that didn’t make me head over heels in love with it. And then I saw Usimarjaana’s version. And fell. Fell hard.
Her mods are perfect. When I start this project, I’ll be using her pattern page as inspiration. Plus that color? Amazing!!
Next up is Yuki77‘s Water to Sky anklets – I’m not sure I would have ever given the original pattern a second look without seeing her finished socks. I love me some anklets, and these are great! Hers have inspired me so much, that these are at the top of my “to make” list!
I love how the solid color allows the lace to really pop – can’t wait to make my own!
Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. The original socks look super thin, cheap, and small.
     
    As for the original cardigan, it doesn't look like it fits well. I like the chunky buttons in the second and the absence of the pocket.
