Mistale Knitted by Roberta Anderson

Front_medium2I wanted to share these photos of Italian Roberta Anderson’s Mistale. It is one of my test knits she has taken part in. Roberta knitted Mistale in size S and has added this note: “the yarn I used is a bit of a mistery… Labelled as Zegna Baruffa Guanaco from 1991, I don’t know if guanaco is the actual fibre, or just a brand name. It has longer fibres like alpaca, but feels rustic, so it could be a wool-alpaca blend? whatever it is, it’s perfect for this sweater!” Roberta used 3 strands of it and it is actually a straight green. The result is stunning and I love her scarf and green backdrop! Roberta’s Ravelry id is MiniRobe and her Ravatar is her hand outstretched with 3 miniature baby sets. She writes: “Then, a few years ago, I discovered miniature knitting for 1/12 scale dolls (quick to knit, and no risk of the wee cuties growing while I was knitting!). Now miniature knitting is a bit of a strain on my eyesight, so back to normal knitting…” So if you are on Ravelry, check out her projects. Thank you so much, Roberta!

Back_medium2Here is a photo of the back. The Norwegian pattern was first published in Familien Strikk last August and the pattern is still available from them. The English pattern is available on Ravelry and on Loveknitting.
