Many of the tricks and tips and customization suggestions taught during this class will prove to be a lot of fun!

ASANAGI 朝凪 (jap.) - morning calm

Inspired by the Japanese original seikai-ha patterning. Juxtaposing two different textures with each motif the design is created using a modular technique without breaking of the yarn while each tier is being built upon motif after motif. Extremely easy to customize - this wrap can be turned into anything from a cowl to a blanket and vary in width and length to suit your utmost needs. Using the original weight yarn or one of your own choosing simply remember to select the correct needle size and make your Asanagi grow to the dimensions you prefer. Add or subtract colors simply by working more or fewer tiers, this project will definitely keep you well entertained throughout the process.

About Olga:
"Having been taught to knit at the age of 4 by my professional seamstress mother, I acquired my tailoring skills early while working alongside her. 

My knitting career began in 2003 while traveling the world. I have discovered numerous sources of inspiration and began to explore these through the medium of yarn and knitting. 
Contributions and collaborations with numerous yarn companies and publications resulted in collections of garments and accessories that ae uniquely my style.

The “olgajazzy” brand of independent knitwear patterns was established in 2006. 
Innovative, versatile and born out of my natural curiosity for geometry, architecture and textile explorations. All the while grounded in practicality of finished pieces and concentrating on enriching skills set of any knitter through my patterns.
