I am involved with the FAF festival again this year, and am putting thoughts together of a piece to enter into it when call for entries start around July. This annual exhibition usually runs about August/September. Although I didn't put a weaving in last year I had been looking at korowai, and submitted a knitted interpretation shown here.
The cuff at the top was knitted with fine copper wire, fishing nylon, and fine rayon yarn. Although wholly unruly to knit, this combination of materials gave a very random and sturdy hanging edge for the hanging of the piece. The body of the work was knitted into garter and purl stitch, barely definable, squares using silk ribbon. Feathers were used to adorn the cuff and cord.
