… wavelets …

I discovered Habu yarns from Japan. What a beauties, and such stylish presentations.

I knitted this sweater very intuitively, I felt that this silk yarn would need some texture, so I added some wavelets to make it more interesting. I only used two skeins of Tsumugi silk: one of each colour for the Small version.

Very lightweight (I used only 96 gr) in 100% silk. Ideal for cool summer evenings with a texture of easy to make wavelets.

The tsumugi silk is worked with a larger needlesize than recommended to obtain an airy, lightweight and drapey garment.

… wild cabling …

This yarn is undyed. It’s the natural colour of a black sheep.

This sweater is inspired by a Japanese pattern,
but I changed it a lot. I wanted the central design to go from wide at the bottom to smaller at the top, so I have redrawn the pattern. I knitted long sleeves also with a motif, I decided for a layered look. and I put another motif at the back.
Yarn held double for the body.
Single strand for the sleeves.
