“Kushu Kushu” merino & silk stainless steel scarf

I’m mesmerized by the cones of yarn from HABU textiles.  Silk stainless, paper moire, paper linen and tsumugi silk to name a few.  Kushu Kushu merino and silk stainless scarf  designed by Setsuko Torii, uses four different needle sizes which explores the effects of tension and gauge within the design. The co-mingling of the silk merino and silk stainless steel begin the scarf, while the silk stainless steel stands alone at the other end of the scarf.

The pattern  consists of a numbering system familiar to Japanese knitters.  The numbering system produces a straight-forward schematic, thus eliminating questionable interpretations associated with writtern instructions.

After knitting the scarf, I incorporated wooden beads secured with silicone rubberbands for resists,  and lightly fulled the scarf by hand.

I enjoy the process of pushing the world of fiber to its limits with the use of knitting needles and various methods of experimentation. Along the way, the lens of my camera captures what I see.

    Beautiful natural colours and it looks so light and delicate too. Is it soft to the touch?
