A new Mystery Knit Along - with Feinmotorik to Peru

As a reminder, knitalong is where a group of knitters knit a mystery pattern at the same time. It is a mystery because you do not know what the end project will look like. At the beginning, the only information you have is a general idea of what it will be (in this case a cowl and a hat) and how much and what wool you will need for it. The pattern is broken down into a series of sections or clues which are gradually published. So, you knit the whole project in stages within a given timeframe.  

With the Jaqaru KAL we make a little trip to Peru. Jaqaru (Haq'aru) is an endangered language in Peru which belongs to the Aru language family. Jaqaru means "human language" and is only spoken by about 700 people today. The majority of speakers have migrated from the Tupe district and the surrounding villages to the capital Lima, where today mainly Spanish is spoken and the Jaqaru language is not passed on to the children.

If you do not want to knit with alpaca, you can choose other yarns which are also good for this project. For example, camel wool Cairo 4 and Yak Mongolia. Also our new organic cashmere Cashmere Worsted would be suitable for Jaqaru. Those, who want to forego the animal fibers, can knit vegan with our cotton yarn Re-Jeans
