Bellissimo! Rosita by RosyPosy Designs is
a chevron-striped capelet that pays homage to Rosita Missoni, the founding
mother of the famed Italian fashion house (she also happens to share my
name!). Instructions are included for random striping (top pics) or a
regular sequence of stripes (fourth pic). Rosita is quick to knit in aran
weight yarn and is worked from the bottom-up, with the body and collar knit
in once piece. The front bands are then picked up along the sides. This
pattern is for the advanced beginner.
