At 16,024 feet (4,884 m), the Carstensz Pyramid is the tallest mountain in Indonesia and on the Australian “continent” of Oceania. the first documented summit success was in 1962 by an Austrian expedition. Although known as the Carstensz Pyramid, possibly as long ago as 1623 when it was first spotted on an unusually clear day, the name was changed to Puncák jaya in the latter half of the 1900s. Puncák means “peak” and jaya means “glorious.” Carstensz Pyramid is still the name used among mountain climbers.

This piece is worked in the round. Feel free to use a fingering weight yarn and work at a larger gauge for a larger throw or blanket. Just remember to have more yardage on hand!
