Customer Project - Creative Modifications

Did you know you don't always have to follow the pattern? Sometimes it's fun to go off course and make some changes.

The other day we saw a beautiful modification of our very popular Hexie Baby Blanket pattern.
The original blanket was knit in the Jojoland Rhythm Superwash yarn and the striping sequences really make a dramatic effect in the separate hexagons.

Our customer Mary Ellen brought in her modified version of the blanket knit in Kertzer Marble yarn. This yarn is also an easy care yarn that has some dramatic color effects.

Mary Ellen was creative. She chose two colors that worked very nicely together and knit up several hexagons. She made 2 additional pieces and arranged them in a different pattern than the original blanket.
Not only do the colors stand out in a different configuration, but the finished blanket is a different shape.

Well done! We all loved it!
