A hot outfit for cold days Knitted bolero with a lace look, made from a fabric produced on an HKS 4-M EL

Winter does not always have to mean polo-neck jumpers, chunky knits and grey-on-grey colours. Even on cold days, women can be brave enough to wear transparent fabrics and show a little skin. The ensemble shown on this page is a stylish example of this. This delicate bolero and the light and airy little tulle skirt are reminiscent of beautiful figure skating fashions and are an attractive contrast to fur - the classic winter warmer.
A real eye-catching feature of the outfit is the cropped top, which is made from a feather-light fabric with a lace look, produced on a high-speed tricot machine. An HKS 4-M EL in a gauge of E 28 was used to produce it. The machine's EL control facility, the clever yarn threading arrangement, and the sophisticated combination of yarns produce a lace-look fabric featuring a variety of designs, i.e. mesh structures with large openings and dense areas with superimposed scalloped patterns create an alternating striped design. The interplay between the open-work and the dense constructions is produced by the yarns processed in ground guide bars GB 3 and GB 4. A filet threading arrangement and a fully threaded arrangement alternate in sequence. GB 2 and GB 3 work the pattern in the dense areas.
Matt/shiny effects bring a touch of extravagance to the graphic look. The shimmering effect is produced by processing monofilament yarns having a trilobal cross-section in the filigree ground, which resembles an embroidery ground. The superimposed design is made from textured polyester multifilament yarns having a large number of filaments - a choice of yarns that enables the design to contrast effectively with the ground.
