This is a test pattern of stitch number 006 from Nihon Vogue 300 crochet pattern book. I really like this stiches and I think it could make a nice pattern for shawl or cardigan. In this test I was using soft cotton yarn in size 3 light worsted but I am pretty sure it will drape nicely if crocheted in bamboo or silk yarn.
Balinese Cotton Yarns
Natural plant dyeing with the bark of kayu tinggi (Angsana, sonokembang (Pterocarpus indicus). I learned the technique from @rebeccadesnos book Botanical Color at Your Fingertips using soya milk as mordant. The yarn is bamboo and here it is at its 2nd time bath in the dye. The first bath turn out light beige, quite lovely but I’d like a darker shade. Will soak this for 24 hours and photograph the result once the yarns had dried... InsyaAllah.. #plantdyes #botanicaldyes #naturaldyes #kayutinggi #angsana
