To our publishers and customers

[June 16, 2019] The site has now stopped selling patterns.

We will continue to make our customers' stashes accessible to them to the end of 30 June, 2019, in order to provide them with time to save their purchased patterns to their personal hard drives.

Thank you all so very much for your enthusiastic support over the years.  It has meant an enormous amount to us.

Book 3 Birdi

In this very charming little slip-stitch pattern, the magic is all in the colour choices. Pick three colours and you're away. That's really all you have to worry about here-- there are only straight lines and right angles in this garment, with no slopes at all. The body is very generously sized, so choose carefully. This design is from Mirasol Book 3.

The pattern does not specify this, but you should know it: unless otherwise directed, all stitches should be slipped purlwise, one at a time. Otherwise they may land up twisted.

The original Tupa was a wool/silk blend. The Tuhu is an identical DK weight, and is a baby llama/merino/angora blend. If substituting, just make sure you get gauge.
