Finished object: Foldover Top from Ori Ami Knits, knit with Habu yarns!
Tamara recently completed the elegant Foldover Top pattern by Olga Buraya-Kefelian from the book Ori Ami Knits. The pattern calls for a strand each of Habu Textiles A-1 2/17 tsumugi silk and A-20 silk wrapped stainless to be held together to create a light, incredibly malleable fabric. The minimalistic look of the design combines simple, yet innovative, construction that emphasizes the shoulders with minimal seaming. The edges are treated with various i-cord techniques to provide a refined look. Tamara chose color 12 (natural) of the tsumugi silk and color 01 (white) of the silk wrapped stainless, creating the perfect color combination to show off her summer tan. Currently, we have ten colors of the tsumugi silk and eight colors of the silk wrapped stainless in stock (see photo below). What color combination will you choose?
