Of course, I will have to buy some yarn in Peru! I have already blogged information from Martha Hood at:
But here are some more ideas:
The yarn used is 50% Merino and 50% mohair. The designer used almost 1000 yds. It is knitted on size 7 (4.5 mm) needles
This pattern calls for US 13 needles (9mm). It needs 270 yes of yarn.
The next pattern is for lace weight yarn held double. The photo shows a yarn that is 70% Alpaca and 30% silk. It is knit on size 8 needles and requires 440 yards of three colors of lace weight yarn:
The next pattern is a simple but effective shawl in Chunky Yarn. It calls for 500 yards of yarn and is knit on US 11 needles (size 8mm)
