Hari 針(jap.) - needle, spike.
This cool accessory provides one with many options. Worked in a rectangular shape just like for a basic scarf using an amazing textured stitch pattern that makes this whimsy a delightful sight. Inspired by intricate pleating it transitions into knit fabric with flexibility and wearability. Wear it as a scarf, longer or shorter cowl, a snood or even a bolero. All those manipulations using minimal of haberdashery but awarding the simplest of outfit with a stunning detail.
