針 (jap.) – needle, spike
This accessory provides one with many options. Worked in a rectangular shape just like for a basic scarf using an amazing textural stitch pattern that makes this whimsy a delightful sight. Inspired by intricate pleating it transitions into knit fabric with flexibility and wearability. Wear it as a scarf, longer or shorter cowl, a snood or even a bolero. All those manipulations using minimal of haberdashery but awarding the simplest of outfit with a stunning detail.
