The pattern above is supplied free by Misti and is available here. One of our most popular winter yarns has just arrived in new autumn colours! Misti Chunky is 100% Baby Alpaca, super soft and warm. It knits up fast, at 3.5 stitches to the inch, and makes a lovely lightweight but super warm fabric. It comes in solids and beautiful handpaints. The new seasons handpaints are already selling quickly. (The pictures will be loaded on our website later this week – but check out Swan Lake CP29 and Falstaff CP27 below.)
