I love Missoni's stuff! They're all amazing works of knitted art. But they're a little out of my price range. I have been trying to look for patterns that look a lot like a real Missoni, but I haven't had any luck. Does anyone know of any?  I particularly love this skirt http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/22808?cm_mmc=LinkshareUS-_-Custom-_-Link-_-Builder&siteID=Hy3bqNL2jtQ-z1cO0Jg5_urio2xwhq9qbw, and I think I'm going to attempt to make it. I have been looking for some really beautiful knitting stitches that would work for it, but I am having a hard time finding anything that resembles the green scalloped row, the pale pink row, or the white/purple rows. Any suggestions?

The hem looks like bear claw, Nicky Epstein did that in one of her "edge" books or you could use this free afghan pattern.

The pale pink looks like ostrich/peacock plume and you could get that from this bolero pattern.

The white/purple looks like a pretty common leaf pattern, you could figure it out from this counterpane pattern.

Check out the patterns on knittingfool, as well.  There are several "leaf" motifs that might work well for you!
