Drops of Memory is a versatile rectangular shawl that combines classic mosaic patterns. The knitting starts from the longer side of the central section and then the side sections are worked out from the shorter edges.
Mosaic knitting uses slipped stitches and only one colour per row. Mari Tobita grew up in the northern part of Japan, where the shores are dotted with small sheds used by fishermen in fall. She was inspired by these wooden outer walls exposed to wind and snow.
