Right at the heart of you, there’s a goddess. A raw, creative force that knows no bounds.

Some days she roars from the core of us, shaking those who need to be shaken; sometimes we feel her as a soft, calming energy, enveloping those who need tenderness and love. Every now and then, it’s us who need our own gentleness, soothing words and kindness.

Hina is an ode to the goddess in you. She is warmth, grace and rhythm; she is thoughtful, certain and strong.

Knitted from the top down, and in the round with cosy plump DK or worsted-weight yarn, Hina will sweep you along with regular and meditative slip stitches, which create stunning circular bands.

The rolled collar is gloriously soft and flattering and can be easily adapted to a shorter neckband if desired.

Hina is a perfectly entertaining knit for experienced knitters and adventurous beginners.
