Misurina Yarn Kit

Misurina is the 4th design in Caitlin's series of summer tops inspired by places in Italy Caitlin wants to visit! Misurina is a lake in the Dolomites- Cailin dreams of a day of hiking in the mountains followed by dinner and a glass of wine at the Pizzeria Edelweiss…

This top down yoke sweater features lace, cables and colorwork for a trifecta of knitting techniques! My sample is knit in KOKON 4ply / Fingering Weight Merino that is available in a beautiful array of colours. The loose gauge and relaxed fit are both flattering and comfortable to wear. The body length is easily adjusted to suit your preference. You can choose from a purl dot pattern or an eyelet pattern for the body.
The Cress and Space sample pictured uses the purl dot pattern. To see the eyelet version can be seen on ravelry. (The link is below)

Misurina is a size inclusive design, with sizes to fit busts from 28-66” 71-168 cm. The Cress and Space sample pictured is a size 4 worn with 6” of positive ease.
