the modified Modernist



I was getting ready to ship the Modernist to Becca of The BagSmith for Stitches West when I started thinking about a scaled down version, one that would use only 1 skein (300yds) of Blissa Bling and here it is.



This version has a slightly smaller neck opening, the shorter sleeves and is a bit more fitted.



I used the whole skein with very little left and in keeping it a one skein piece the size is a S/M.

This version has been added to the original pattern and is available as a PDF for $6.50

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!
