missoni accomplished

Wednesday, June 03, 2020

Stash knitting never felt so good. I made a sweater that I actually love and am excited to wear! This yarn has been in my stash for a while and is a Classic Elite linen blend.  Unfortunately, Classic Elite is no longer in business.  But this sweater would work in an array of yarns.

This is the Missoni Accomplished that made me truly feel accomplished.  This piece taught me how to knit both continental and english style knitting.  Two handed stranded.  If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend trying it.  Some of my stitches don't look exactly perfect, but I'm okay with it.
I shortened the sleeves to make it more wearable for this time of year.   But definitely would like to make a winter version in the fall.

Pattern: Missoni Accomplished
Yarn:  Classic Elite Soft Linen  35% Linen, 35%, 30% Baby Alpaca
Gauge:  5.5 = 1"
Needle:  US 5
