“Abya Yala is a Sweater that comes in a version for Circular Needles and Crochet that you can find soon in other publications.

Abya Yala in the language of the Kuna culture means “mature land”, “living land” or “land that blooms” and is synonymous with America. The expression Abya Yala has been used by the original cultures of the continent to self-designate, as opposed to the expression “America.” It is the name of our lands before being colonized.”

Kit includes: 
Pattern
CA - 1 (1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2) skeins
CB - 1 (1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2) skeins
CC - 4 (4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 7) skeins

Construction Notes:
This Sweater has a Bottom Up Modified Drop Shoulder construction.
This pattern is presented in 10 different sizes.
To choose the measure you like best, you must measure the circumference of your chest and choose the final size of the garment that suits you. It is advised that you choose a positive ease of 15 or 20 cm (6” / 8”), that is to say that to the measure of the circumference of your chest you must add 15/20 cm and choose the instructions that approach that total in the final measurements of the garment after blocking.

Personal Note:
The model in the picture (me) has a chest circumference of 87 cm (34” ½ ) and dress the size 2 of the table although I would have liked to knit a size 4 for me.

Yarns:
For this design I used Harvest Worsted from Urth Yarns.
Each skein is 100 gr / 200 m / 3oz ½ / 225 yd.
Composition 100% Merino Superwash. Worsted weight.
