Free Pattern Friday: Kusha Kusha, Azzu’s Shawl April 13, 2012 – Posted in: Free Pattern Fridays, Project Ideas

With new yarns from Habu Textiles now in store, we thought we’d suggest a few simple summer projects to inspire those of you who might want to explore some of these incredible fibers on a smaller scale.

The Kusha Kusha Scarf by Setsuko Torii provides an easy platform to experiment with Habu’s silk stainless steel and fine merino yarns in the creation of a dramatic piece that can be dressed up or down. The combination of colours and textures results in a scarf that is both beautiful and ethereal – and definitely one-of-a-kind!

Azzu’s Shawl

Azzu’s Shawl by Emma Fassio perfectly showcases the light summery feel of Habu’s Tsumugi silk. Because the shape of this piece is quite long without being overly deep, it can be easily worn as a shawl or wrapped and tied around the neck as a scarf. Knit top-down – it’s worked from the center back outwards.

Hurry-up summer!!
