Long Night by Tanya Alpert

Wonderful knitting book with beautiful Japanese designs, most of the patterns are using Habu Textiles yarn. This is one of my Christmas gifts from a dear friend. Love it so much! Thank you, thank you dear buddy for being so thoughtful! hehe i think you knew I have lots of Habu yarns!
When received this book, the first pattern attracted me was the pattern on the cover, but because I do not have the suitable yarn for that pattern, I have to go for this one.....
Pattern: Long Night
Yarn used: Habu Tsumugi Silk + Habu Linen Paper
Knitting Needle: 5.0mm
The FO is so so light and comfortable!! But I still have not found a suitable button!!
Thus, for time being, I'm using a shawl pin...
This is the back.
The construction of the pattern is just amazing!!
Stitches used are garter stitch, stockinette stitch, 1x1 rib stitch, increase & decrease. Charts of different sizes are also provided besides the written instructions.
It's knitted in 3 separated pieces then seam together and you get this FO!!
