Knitters of all skill levels can create luxurious garments using sumptuous yarns derived from the llama and alpaca herds of the Peruvian highlands with this project book. Included amongst the 25 unique patterns are options from head to toe: cardigans and jackets; sweaters and vests; tunics and dresses; plus hats, scarves, mittens, and socks. All are designed to fit an array of body types and are easily adaptable to both modern and traditional tastes. The naturally hued, environmentally friendly merino wool, baby alpaca, and pima cotton called for in these patterns lend a palette of plums, blues, browns, ochers, and creams that instill an earthy sensuality to the attractive apparel. In addition, each pattern is accompanied by lush photography, clear instructions, and a chart indicating how the designer has modified the original pattern.
