Knitting: Cowl
Shik’is (my friend in Navajo) Cowl is inspired by the swirling pottery of the Acoma people. This swirl is used in many pueblo designs. I also added a subtle pop of color on the brims of the cowl to showcase and close off the design. I named my Collection Shik’is (my Friend) because I’d love for you to make and gift any of these patterns to a lo...

Knitting: Headband
Shik’is (my friend in Navajo) headband is a simple design meant to be made up quickly for a nice warm gift. I wear my hair in a bun most days and I needed an option to keep my ears warm on runs. The shik’is headband is an easy solution with some style added in. Also it is really great for bad hair days! I named my Collection Shik’is (my Friend)...

Knitting: Cowl
This design is based off of the Navajo Sandcast jewelry I grew up seeing in my family’s store on the Navajo Reservation. I love the contrast of turquoise and sterling silver in the more classic looking bracelets. They’re chunky, sometimes oversized, and beautiful. The Sand Cast Cowl is all of these and with an added detail of being made with Na...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
I bought this beautiful yarn in Tempe, AZ and I have been holding on to it for awhile now. I wanted to make myself a hat to wear for Fall. I imagined this hat to look like the wind swept walls of Chaco Canyon and the detailed kiva ruins built by the Anasazis or “Ancient Ones.” I hope you enjoy knitting this hat just as much as I enjoyed designi...
Knitting: Cowl
This design is meant to accompany The Peaceful People Hat. I flipped and flopped the original design to create a mosaic of shapes that swirl with clean bold lines. I love the way it turned out with its subtle colors and angles. I named it after the the Hopi people who are referred to as The Peaceful People. To learn more about the Hopi People I...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This design was dreamt up as I was heading to bed one night. I was inspired by the pottery and jewelry designs of the Hopi Tribe. I love that these designs swirl with clean bold lines. I named it after the Hopi people who are referred to as The Peaceful People. To learn more about the Hopi People I added a link to their tribal website: https://...
Knitting: Cowl
Some of my favorite pottery comes from the Acoma Tribe located 60 miles West of Albuquerque. The pottery tends to have a white base and is decorated with black and orange shapes. The tribe has the Sky City Pueblo that sits beautifully on top of a mesa. The orange color used in my cowl reminds me of the mesa when the sun hits the rock. You can t...
Knitting: Scarf
My grand mother (Shi masani) grew up with sheep/cattle and has herded them her whole life. She told me stories of how, as a kid, she was sent outside in the worst weather and still had to do her job. She said that she wished she had warmer clothes and I wish I had made this item 70 years ago so she could have got some use out of it, BUT she’ll ...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Shi Yazhi means “my little one,” in Navajo. This design is a simple, beginner, knit hat to keep those you love warm and comfy. Great as a gift for a baby shower or present for a birthday!
