Awa-Awa (jap.) - soap bubbles
Inspired by the circular shape of soap bubbles, this wrap combines techniques of working two colors of yarn to create marled fabric while simultaneously working three various sizes of circles in fair-isle in either of the two colors. This method allows you to create intricate patterning with minimal finishing. While the trapping of the floats behind each circle helps to create a completely reversible wrap and adds to the finesse of this accessory.
