Non-original, Original Summer Sweater
So when is a sweater an original design vs. a tweaking of a pattern? I ask because I just finished a sweater that is sort of a combo of two sweaters. I've used the measurements and general style from the top of the Simple Knitted Bodice and for the bottom, I used a stitch pattern that I did on a child's cardigan (Tater's Cotton Cardi). Here's is the result (sorry the photo is so large I can't seem to make it smaller):

For more details and photos, go to my blog:

Great job! I've done similar with taking parts of patterns and incorporating them into my own 'design.' Sweater looks comfy, easy to wear.

It was your original idea to do that combination so I say claim it! :)

Looks great!
