Fila di Nerissa

Ok, I am just that bad with titles. I was destashing very hard for the past couple of months, as I foresee new stash on their way. And I'm glad that I got the latest issue of Rowan 41. It helped me get rid of 4 balls and 3 balls remains. If anybody wants them, its going at US$18 for the whole lot of 3. (inclusive of shipping).

Ok here comes Nerissa.
Pattern: Nerissa from Rowan 41
Yarn: Filatura di Crosa Millefili Fine- 100% cotton, Shade 209, 4 balls
Needle: Clover metal, size 5, 3.6mm
Size: XS
Time to finish: less than 2 weeks.
I had a really hard time trying to catch the truest color for the yarn. The closest is probably the first picture. A very soft and easy yarn to work with. Of course, good stitch definition.

Pattern-wise, its very easy, the stitch pattern is easily memorise after a couple of repeats. Amongst Rowan patterns, Nerissa has the least finishings to be done. I tried to follow closely to the instructions, 'cept for the length cuz I was using something with a smaller gauge.

With the lack of models, I am not able to show u how stretchy the stitch pattern is. Do not worry if it look smaller than usual while knitting. That'e the way how ribbing looks like.




Last but not least, I give thanks to all who left comments about my Teal Feathers. Thank you so much!

Your top is gorgeous! Great work!
Thanks for commenting on my blog. I hadn't thought of such a simple solution as removing the memory card before the x-ray.

Oh I just love this top! The color and yarn are just so pretty. Great job. You're so lucky you can knit the small sizes, I'm so big that it takes me so much longer to get them done.
