Although entirely different in construction, this is my answer to a Missoni sweater I spotted online and immediately coveted. This version feels like an elevated favourite sweatshirt – balancing just the right amount of comfort and style. Worked from the top-down incorporating twisted rib, a simple repeated colourwork motif, and minimal shaping, Missoni Accomplished is an easy, accessible project and a very wearable addition to any wardrobe.
