The Te Moana River runs out of the foothills of the Southern Alps to the ocean. Moana is the maori word for the ocean. The gorgeous deconstructed cables you will create in this beautiful squishy wrap reflect the ripples of the ocean.

Te Moana Wrap is designed for snuggling in. It’s a gorgeous big knit that envelops you and keeps you warm. It’s a fun pattern that keeps you interested, while still being simple enough to knit in front of the TV or while chatting to your favourite people. Just you wait till you get to the end! Ooh that bind off is fun!

I adore this bespoke Foxhow yarn! It’s a squishy, bouncy blend of suri alpaca and polwarth fibre made in collaboration between Tarndie and Great Ocean Road Mill in Victoria, Australia. Need to squish your own? Check out happygoknitty.co.nz.
