Dip-dyed wrap

Added Aug 3, 2011

I made the wrap ā€œfā€ from the Japanese pattern book Unique Clothes Any WayYou Like by Natsuno Hiraiwa, using a thick creamy coloured knit stuff. I then dip-dyed it in a mixture of iDye Poly in Blue, and half a jar of Moccona instant coffee. Iā€™m very happy with the subtle smudge colour I got from this mix, as well as the ombre effect of the dip-dyeing technique.

    This is an amazing look, and your added creative dying topped it wonderfully. I will be checking out other projects you have made, your style appears minimal and yet very sophisticated. I would wear this to an art gallery opening.

    Wonderful job on the dye and the armholes. Its such an amazing and simple pattern- my partner made one and it always looks good on….actually the whole book is pretty good.

      Thankyou! Yep, it is a great book. This is the fifth thing I’ve made out of it…. has your partner made any other of the designs?

      She made the shrug-n- page 64 out of linen which looks so nice. I made a version as a single piece- two layers out of knit jersey. The spiral scarf c I put up as a project a while ago.
