Hanshi is the kind of paper most often used in Sumi ink drawings, the inspiration for this collection. Scarf is knit sideways, on the bias. Black contrast color sections are worked with short rows. A different colored marker is used at each end to help determine the WS and RS of the knitting, which can be tricky on a garter stitch piece.
