Being quarantined at home had me craving an easy knit with bright, happy colors. I pulled six skeins of Amano Yarns Chaski from my stash and started swatching. Held double stranded, this project works up so quickly. The fabric features solids and marled sections making each color change exciting. Dig through your stash, grab 6 skeins of fingering weight yarn and have some fun!
