the Modernist


This is one of those pieces that I'm sorry to see go, but it's packed up and ready to ship to The BagSmith who's taking it to Stitches West the weekend of 2/24.

This is a super simple pattern and a quick knit using #15 (10mm) needles and 2 skeins of The BagSmith's Blissa Bling. A wonderfully lightweight alpaca/merino/metallic yarn that is so lofty I have a hard time believing it's rated as a bulky! It certainly doesn't feel like one when you're wearing it. It has a beautiful drape and the metallic gives it a nice flair. I'm definitely making one for myself!


Available as a PDF download. $6.50

  1. This looks terrific, I can see why you don't want to see it go. Going by the photos the fabric doesn't look bulky but rather light and drapey. Great colour too.
    I hope your christmas went well for you and the family :)

  3. Oh, I love this -- absolutely something I would wear. I'm not sure about the sleeves as I tend to like feeling a little more snug toward my wrists but the whole look is beautiful!

  5. I love this so much that I bought the pattern inside of 10 seconds from reading your post:). I don't have ready access to the recommended yarn, can you suggest some alternatives in the meantime?
    Thank you for another gorgeous design!
