P?tikitiki is a cozy matching hat and cowl with an addictive color-work motif that you’ll find hard to put down! The inspiration behind the color-work motif comes from M?ori tukutuku, woven panels that can be found decorating the walls of the marae (meeting houses). The central diamond motif is called P?tikitiki, or P?tiki for short. P?tiki is M?ori for the flounder fish, representing abundance. The diamonds within the main diamond add to the idea of plenty, signifying layers of abundance. So when you wear the P?tiki, good fortune is sure to follow (perhaps an abundance of yarn?). A perfect addition to any stranded-knitting lover’s handmade wardrobe.

Pattern has been professionally tech edited. Includes charts only.

Note about updated version of the pattern:

I received a few concerns that using food motifs on a M?ori named hat pattern is in violation of M?ori tikanga. As this community consists of both M?ori and non-M?ori and was addressed in this space, I have decided to use this opportunity to share what I am learning regarding tikanga — a topic that is often shrouded in mystery when it doesn’t have to be. You can read the full blog post on my Patreon.

My hope in creating designs is first and foremost to spread aroha and stories close to my heart. With a trusted group of advisors to help me navigate and connect to my cultural heritage, I feel pulled to representing mahi that best expresses that.

Therefore the P?tikitiki Pattern will be updated to just include the cowl.
