ABACATHA by Jana Huck
Abacatha shows a line of pearls – almost like a necklace – which nicely accentuates the background of plain stocking stitch. A special effect is the noble wrinkle look of the scarf which is created by using ITO Washi and ITO Tetsu held together. The motif is then created by using an extra strand of ITO Sensai.
