Inspired by the way the Japanese origami papers are beautifully folded…
I placed this ruffle-like shape on either side of the waistline. They are acqually squares but when the garment is worn, it drapes to look like a little butterflies…
There is a single folding ribbon pattern at the centre back and front. I kept it minimal but interesting.
Structurally it’s simple. The body is worked bottom up in circular knitting up the underarm. Back and front are then divided and joined at shoulders.
Sleeve are also worked in circular knitting and attached afterwards. This means I could make a modern looking garment while keeping the classic set-in style.
Zitron Kimono was an ideal yarn to work with. Beautiful shade, texture and fibre. I want to knit with this yarn more!
I think the magazine will be out very shortly. There are so many beautiful designs in this issue. I just can’t believe I could be along with so many superb designers. I am so thankful. I just can’t wait to see the actual magazine!
