The pattern is top-down, seamless in construction and offers a wonderful blank canvas should one decide to embellish.

PS - wondering how to say the name of this pattern, or exactly what it means? The designer comes from New Zealand where the second national language is Maori.
This pattern was released during Maori Language week 2011 (July 4th-10th); a chance to celebrate the native tongue of our country.
Tama is a Maori word meaning ‘boy’ or ‘son’, and pronounced ‘taah-maah’.
