Taniko Colorwork Cowl Yarn Pack, pattern not included, ready to ship

Taniko Colorwork Cowl Yarn Pack

We've knit up the Whakarua Kopito chart in our cowl, but there are actually five (5) different charts to choose from! Your yarn pack includes enough yarn to knit one of the 5 cowls.

"One pattern. Five different choices. Infinite Creativity.

The Tāniko Colorwork cowls is a pattern where YOU get to chose which stitch pattern you wish to use for your special cowl. There are five different stitch motifs in this pattern, each featuring my interpretation of traditional Māori weaving motifs, called tāniko.

Each motif has its own meaning, which is covered in the pattern. Accessible to first time colorwork knitters, and fun for stranded knitting fans, there’s something for all knitters here.

As these cowls are pretty quick knits and hard to put down, they make great gifts for the winter season or a handy emergency knit when the weather turns cold all of a sudden." --from the designer
