This pattern was inspired by the Japanese concept of “Ikigai,” which represents a person’s reason for being. Roughly translated, Ikigai is “the happiness of always being busy.” We live in such a busy world these days. We’re always rushing from one thing to the next, attached to our devices, rarely taking the time we need and deserve to stop, breathe and notice all of the beauty and wonder that surrounds us each and every day.

The Alpaca Yarn Company's Paca-Paints are 100% alpaca hand painted to beautiful multi-colored shades. Paca-Paints are the same weight as our Classic Alpaca. Each 100 gm skein is approximately 220 yards. The gauge = 22 st / 4″ (5.5 st/1″) using US #6 (4.0mm) needles. In color Mardi Gras.
