I found this twisted shawl in the new Japanese book “hand*madeわたしのニット” (ASIN4277172067) published in this January by Ondori. The shawl is surprisedly similar to the one among my potential projects. The green shawl in the middle was from some Brazilian(?) crochet magazine I read last year. The Japanese one seems to be knitted, while the other is crocheted. Pointed with my ugly purple arrow, a name is claimed as the designer of the shawl. As this style is totally new to me before I saw the green one, I am very curious about which one is the original. Or were they inspired by something in common, say some fashion shows. There are thousands of crafting books published every year in Japan. It is hard to maintain their “uniqueness” sometime.
