Ami-Ami ??? (jap.) - knit(ted) net

Originally inspired by paper kirigami created for the Japanese summer holiday Tanabata, this fun geometric mesh scarf is modularly knit and shaped on the bias. Two different lengths are provided and the width is customizable on this funky retracted mesh scarf. Any fingering or sport weight yarn would work perfectly for it. Or pair two unusual and very different yarns together as used in the original.
Scarf knit on a bias using modular technique.

Aranami ?? (jap).- (n) stormy seas, raging waves
Color and patterning of this shawl reminded me of a winter ocean with foamy raging waves on the surface. Poor weather and dark skies reflecting in the ocean add to the color and obscure grey lines of the horizon merging with the sky. Worked in modular technique, this shawl is a great travel project as elements are worked one at a time. Pick your colors and see them transition under your fingers.

Tip on weaving in of the ends: Try weaving ends of the shawl from previous motifs as you go; weave them in 1st row of every new motif, that would help reducing amount of ends by the end. Learn More
