  • Featured Design: Chunkitu is a feminine accessory piece from Mirasol Book 29 for Api and Hasa. It is detailed with a lacey garter stitch edging, and takes its name from the Quechua term of endearment 'Chunkitu', which means 'beloved'. Suitable for intermediate knitters, it can be knit and worn as a scarf, or, with the addition of a twist and the seaming of its two ends, it can become a pretty infinity loop (click enlarge to see a photo of it finished and worn this way). With finished measurements of approximately 20 x 134 cm (7.75" x 52.75"), it uses 3 hanks of Mirasol Api.

    The Mirasol Project supports local communities in Peru through the sales of the Mirasol Yarn Collection. A portion of every purchase goes directly to the funding of a centre in the remote area of Munani in the region of Puno.
