miromesnil

Wednesday, May 06, 2020

My latest knit slid off the needles last week, and I am in love.
I don't think I have made myself a knit that I haven't had to layer in quite a while.  Well, at least since Turtle Dove.  And this unlayered knit feels like silk against my skin.
I think it could be the combination of the yarn and the knit.  The drape truly feels dreamy.

Miromesnil offers several different possibilities: long or short, fitted or oversized, pleated at the front or/and at the back, with fitted or bishop sleeves, long or 3/4", and with flat or tightening finishing ribs.  SO many possibilities.
I think my version is mid-length, oversized with long bishop sleeves with a rib.
Increases and German short rows shape the yoke and give a beautiful stitch look.
Although I don't mind the tubulars bind off, I did not do it here as written in the pattern as I could not get the tightness I wanted.

Pattern:  Miromesnil
Size: M
Yarn:  Modus Operandi Fingering 3 skeins, olive  Modus Operandi Lace 3 skeins olive
Needle Size:  US 7 and US 8

  3. I think, if I knit this, I would do a small as that is still for a 39" chest circumference and I usually knit a small. Your medium doesn't look too large on you though, but the pattern says a medium is for a 43". I guess my question is are you glad you chose the medium? Thank you!

    1. Hi! So my gauge was a little off with this yarn and gave me a size in between the small and the medium. It came to about 1 40.5" bust measurement. It is a bit oversized, but I feel that with this drape it could be. It's blousy. :)
