Open Air Wrap
For this project I chose their spectacularly fascinating Silk Wrapped Paper. Not really paper, but paper-like, Silk Wrapped Paper is actually a slender linen tape bound with an even finer thread of silk. Knit up, it is sculptural, featherlight and totally statement making.The super simple Purse Stitch, which essentially creates a net-like mesh, gives the Silk Wrapped Paper plenty of room to breathe and to express itself.
- 5 skeins of Habu’s Silk Wrapped Paper, 99% Linen and 1% Silk. This color is White Navy.
- A US #4 straight or circular needles. I used 24-inch Addi Turbo Rockets (They have great pointy tips for easy p2tog’s and very smooth shafts for speed).
