eBook : 8 patterns

9 wonderful easy to make patterns, clean cuts, only garter or stockinette stitch. The yarn used is a super light and warm baby alpaca bouclé yarn, called Buchara Light. The structure of the yarn reminds me of curly persian sweet lambs and hence we called it Buchara. Knits with this yarn create a wonderful effect on the surface and hence you do not need any patterns than garter or other simple stitches to create a show stopping effect.
