Hanami Cowl and Wristlets: This pattern uses one 100 gm/225 yd hank of Knitted Wit Silky & Single (60% wool 40% silk, single ply, worsted weight), or other worsted weight wool or wool blend yarn. Gauge is approximately 18 stitches per 4 inches in stockinette stitch.
I was inspired to design this set by the beautiful Sakura yarn that Knitted Wit dyed as a fundraiser for Japan disaster relief. Sakura is Japanese for cherry blossom, and Hanami is the name given to the spring cherry blossom viewing parties.
