  • Achetez un sac au complet de Sampa par Mirasol pour seulement $45.50. Le prix regulier pour le sac au complet est $70.

"Sampa" from Mirasol is naturally dyed, 100% organic cotton which is certified. Available in a cascade of solid shades, "Sampa" is produced in a remote region of Peru with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this yarn going directly to education of the shepherd's children. This organic cotton fiber is commonly used for throws, pullovers, cardis, boleros as well as for baby blankest, hoodies and booties. 

  Leafy Baby Blanket (takes 8 balls) It’s a lace pattern that uses left and right slanting decreases on both right and wrong side rows. The pattern has both charted and written instructions.

 Yggdrasil Afghan (9 balls used)
An afghan worked from the center out, beginning with a square panel. Borders are worked out from the center, allowing for three sizes in the pattern—baby blanket, afghan, and large counterpane bedspread. Cables, grafting, and charts.
Lisa Jacobs draws on the myth of the World Tree to pattern the Yggdrasil Afghan. A central grove of four trees grows into braided and leaf lace patterned borders -- as in the old Norse stories, all things are interconnected.

Little Valentine
This gorgeous shawl knits up quick and easy!

Tussie Mussie
We usually call the purl side of a garment the wrong side. In this sweater, it's the right side. There's a humble beauty to reverse stockinette, enhanced here with a nosegay stitch pattern.
