Ichi is the first in a series of easy and elegant shapes made with Habu’s Tsumugi Silk.
Ichi is a versatile all weather piece, layer it over or under… Silk is perfect in almost every spring and summer climate and Tsumugi comes in many luscious colors.
The body is worked in the round, with simple not-at-the-sides shaping, the curve at the neck is the natural drape of the fabric. All edging is in garter to add a bit of stability. This knitted fabric is wonderful, and looks amazing.
