For this pattern I used:
Yarn & Amounts: One 100g hank of WYS The Croft Shetland Tweed Aran (100% Shetland Island Wool, 166m/182yds per 100g) in shade A (754 Heylor) and WYS The Croft Shetland Colours Aran shade B (568 Ollaberry). One 100g hank makes four squares.
Metres For Each Shade: 150m to 160m.
Cushion Pad: I used a 30cm x 30cm cushion pad.
Gauge (tension): 17 stitches and 34 rows to 10cm square over garter stitch using 5mm needles.
Measurements: One square measures approx. 16cm x 16cm.
My design ideas and advice: This pattern is perfect for beginners. While for experienced knitters, like me, it is great for a refreshing knit between projects. One to do while you think of the next project you’ll like to complete. Or one to have while you are knitting a more complicated pattern. Simple squares to knit and not think about. I named it Chusi because the original (now discontinued) yarn to make this design was spun in Peru, so I decided to use a Quechua name for the pattern as Quechua is the native language of rural Peru. I chose Chusi because it means striped woollen blanket.
