After a long and stressful day, unwind with the Whakataa Shawl. A relaxing and meditative knit, you’ll find yourself entranced by the yarn running through your fingers, hypnotized by the rhythm of the stitch patterns and in love with the swooping silhouette of the crescent shaping. A collaborative piece between Aroha Knits and Moeke yarns, this shawl was designed to take advantage of the rustic and organic nature of the yarn with a classic and simple design and textural stitches that play wonderfully with the variegated bases.

Pattern includes a video tutorial on how to work the diamond stitch pattern, stitch counts for each RS row, written and charted instructions as well as a link to view and download high-res photos of the shawl.
