ITO Washi

WASHI Header

ITO Washi follows the tradition of noble Japanese paper yarns with an extremely silky softness. The yarn has a good stitch definition and therefore also shows lace patterns nicely. The paper is twisted with a rayon thread which gives the necessary stability to garments and accessories. Washi is washable. We recommend handwash.

Tips:
Paper yarns have a lasting tradition in Japan. They are often compared to silk in their noble character and have similar properties to silk: Cooling in summer and warming in winter. Washi can be knit single stranded for lace and lightweight summer scarves. For shirts and jackets we recommend to knit Washi double stranded or in combination with ITO Kinu or ITO Asa.

BigInJapanTop

Big in Japan is designed for the lovely yarns ITO Washi and ITO Kinu!

You can find the pattern by Katrin Schneider on ravelryor order it with your kit.

The oversized boxy shirt is started by knitting the back from top down to the base of the armhole. The shoulder part is shaped using short rows. Then, both fronts are knitted separately from the top down to the base of the neckline, working increases for the boat neck at the same time. After joining both fronts and working them down to the base of the armhole, back and fronts are then joined for working in the round straight to the hem. 

For the neck finishing, stitches are picked up along the neck, and a small neck band is worked.
