The qiviut knits is a collection of three accessory patterns - headband, hand warmer and hat. The samples are knitted in Nunavut Qiviut and Arctic Fox fibers from the very arctic archipelago I call home. I am happy to share these designs with you and I hope you get a glimpse into what arctic life is like through working with ancient fibers and northern knits.

This project is a special collaboration with Nunavut Qiviut.
