The drape and luster of bamboo thread are highlighted in an alternative spike stitch single crochet that suggests a woven bamboo scroll in a sweater that evokes Eastern garments and artwork. The embroidery echoes the way a few brushstrokes bring a flowering branch to life and the shape of the top mimics the simple, graceful shape of traditional Eastern garments.
