Koigu is a beautiful, hand-painted Merino wool available in a gorgeous mix of colors. No two Koigu dye lots are the same, and a single skein of yarn may contain a dozen different colors. This subtly variegated yarn lends itself to modular knitting, in which small geometric shapes are joined to create a colorful whole. Landra's special book of 25 patterns for Koigu's Painter's Palette yarn-with its mix of shawl, sweater, scarf, vest, skirt, and jacket designs-will appeal to the accomplished knitter ready for the challenge of modular knitting and willing to spend a little more for these gorgeous yarns. Those familiar with this yarn will enjoy the background information on the Landras, founders of Koigu Wool Designs, as well as the illustrated tutorial on modular knitting. For large public libraries and strong knitting collections.
