Pay What Works: In an effort to find a balance between more financial accessibility and sustainable pricing, I now offer a “Pay What Works” model. This allows for financial flexibility while still valuing and respecting the work and energy I and others provide in the making of this pattern. The price shown on Ravelry is the “true” value of the pattern that best reflects the work put into creating this design.

To purchase the pattern at a price point that is more accessible to you, use the coupon code at checkout listed next to the price point. The prices indicate the price you will pay, not the discount amount. No coupon code is needed for the highest price point.

AROHA1 - $3.00

AROHA2 - $3.60

AROHA3 - $4.80

NO CODE - $6.00

Please note for those located in Europe that VAT is applied at checkout.

Venture outside your comfort zone—the place you have known, the things you have seen, the patterns you have knit, leave it all behind and wander into the unknown, and embrace the uncertainty.

The Kumara, also known as the sweet potato, served as a common food source for the Maori before the arrival of the Europeans. The Maori showed respect to the plant in their textile arts and crafts, through a simple geometric motif pattern resembling the leaves of this potato plant, called “rau kumara”.

This is a simple, uncomplicated hat, knit bottom-up, featuring the rau kumara motif on the body.
