One of my favorite things about knitting, or really any crafty thing, is you can create what you want and don’t need to follow the instructions 100% but use them as a jumping off point. And I love to see how other knitters have customized some of my knitting patterns. Shortly after Nymphalidea was releases in the 2013 Deep Fall Knitty last fall, customized projects began showing up on Ravelry. When you look thru the project notes, you see mention of “I knit the pattern until ___ then did this ___” or “I love what ___ did with her shawl so followed her notes” and on and on.
I’ve been keeping a mental list of the projects that I’ve thought included some great modifications and recently reached out to some of those knitters and here are their customized Nymphalidea projects.
