The Peruvian Ch’ulla is part of The World Knits Collection designed by Kristin Nicholas. There are 15 different stranded knitting projects which are designed to stretch a knitter’s skills. Each pattern includes instructions and many charts for the knitter to design their own project mixing Fair Isle charts with different stitches. Peruvian Ch’ulla was originally published in 1992.
The World Knits Collection is designed for adventuresome and experienced knitters who aren’t afraid to take off on their own and modify charts and directions. Back in the day, it was a very successful project with knitters all over the country making lots of unique projects. All of the sample projects photographed were made by adventurous knitters and me. With the republication of the World Knits Collection, I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
The original yarn Tapestry (50 grams/93 yards) is no longer available. Cascade 220 and Valley Yarns’ Northampton are good substitutes. If you have a stash of my yarn - Color By Kristin (from Classic Elite) or Julia (from Nashua Handknits) - they will work too.
