Inspired by vikkel stitch stockings from the island of Muhu, Maru plays with interlocking vikkel twisted stitch patterns and shapes. The name Maru means ‘storm’ in Estonian – it is the perfect hat for any wintery weather.
This hat is knit from the brim up. The brim features ribbing with a centred twisted stitch vikkel pattern that extends into a strip up the body of the hat to the end of the crown shaping.
Each bundle contains the yarn you will need to complete your project.
The pattern is not included.
Veski is one of the beautiful designs included in Aleks Byrd’ new book. Traditions Revisited – Modern Estonian Knits is an introduction to contemporary Estonian knitting . The book is published by Laine Published.
NOTE: on our baby yak colors, we only dye on the natural basis we have, no bleaching or decoloring so depending on the shade of the natural fiber, each color will vary from season to season, making it darker or lighter. This is the beauty of working with natural fiber and so the shade of the sample you see photographed, not always correspond to the shade we have in stock or at your local LYS.
