Indonesian Batik Inspired Knits : Launched!

I’ve been trying to apply Indonesian batik motifs to knitting since…when was it…mid 2008, I think. I remember it was ‘parang’ motifs, and I just made a couple of parang motif samples, and one clutch in another motifs (from the edging of one of my batik shawl). After those samples, I was on knitting hiatus for a while.

I started again a few months ago, with new energy (from pregnancy, I think. Everytime I was pregnant I was more productive and creative than ever! Should I pregnant every year then? *NOOOOO!*). Kawung and tumpal motifs were my focus, and I tried to apply them to beret or tam, because I love how the beret-top-shaping affect the motifs.

These are some of the results (the ones I’m happy to present here…:D)

More will come…and the patterns will be available soon!
