Aconcagua, in the Andes mountains of Argentina, is the highest mountain on the south American continent, at 22,837 feet (6,961 m). the first recorded ascent was in 1897 by a British expedition. It continues to be a popular climbing destination, and the youngest person documented to have reached the summit of Aconcagua was a nine-year-old, in 2013. the oldest documented climber was an eighty-seven-year-old, in 2007. this project gives directions for a handspun version and one knit with a commercially available yarn in the identical fiber. the handspun version omits the beads, which are used liberally in the commercially available yarn version! there are two different bind-off options. the “eyeBrow” bind-off takes longer and uses more yarn, but it is well worth the effort. the handspun version shows the Gathered Crochet bind-off and the other shows the “eyeBrow.”
