Nette is knitted on size 8 needles using stockinette stitch with Habu’s Nerimaki silk. The yarn is extremely thick and thin so it “slubs” as you knit, creating the beautiful texture. It is an asymmetrical cardigan which is knit back and forth on circular needles… which means no seaming.
General knitting skills plus circ knitting and bias bind-off (see the bias bind-off tutorial).
