Misurina is the 4th design in my series of summer tops inspired by places in Italy I want to visit! Misurina is a lake in the Dolomites- I dream 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 Cosy Posy Yarn Co’s Feather- a merino linen singles blend that gives this design a lovely drape and softness. 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.
Gold and grey sample pictured uses the purl dot pattern. Gold and mint sample uses the eyelet pattern.

Misurina is a size inclusive design, with sizes to fit busts from 28-66” 71-168 cm. Gold and grey sample pictured is a size 2 worn with 6” of positive ease. Gold and mint sample pictured is a size 4 worn with 6” of positive ease.

Swatch both colorwork and dots pattern as you may need
to change needle sizes to maintain an even gauge. You
should always knit your swatch the same way that the pattern is knit —in this case, in the round. Block your swatch as you will your finished garment and allow it to dry fully before measuring.
