ITO BAMBOO LEAF Embroidery Pattern

The Bamboo Leaf pattern is a small decorative embroidery design for pillowcases, clothing or simply as a wall hanging in the embroidery frame. Thanks to the silk embroidery Yarn ITO Iki, the embroidered image has a beautiful shine that changes with light and creates light and shadow effects. The monochrome version in grey looks almost like a watercolor painting. The variations in green tones are more naturalistic. The pattern gets more depth by using light and dark hues, even if they are chosen abstractly.

ITO IWAKI Wrist Warmers

We’re super excited about our new yarn line, ITO Rakuda, a dreamy mix of wool and camel fiber. It is gloriously soft and full-bodied, plumping up nicely during its first dip in the handwash bucket.

ITO wants to spread the excitement with two free patterns for Rakuda. First up, IWAKI Wrist Warmers. You know what they say: “Cold hands, warm heart.” Now you can have warm hands, too! This super simple pattern can be whipped up in no time with just one cone of ITO Rakuda.
