Karekare Pullover knitting pattern
“E kore e wheko, he mea iri ki runga ki te whēnako, e kore e wheko.”
The yearning for something cannot be easily extinguished. – Māori Proverb
My yearning to connect back to my cultural heritage, in true Seeker Fibre Muse sense, was the idea that prompted this design, and the other designs in this quarterly collection. The colorwork design is based off a traditional geometric wave motif found in Māori weaving. Karekare is Te Reo Māori for wave, but can also mean “choppy or rough waters.”
Karekare is designed for any Seeker Fibre Muse who feels like they don’t belong, caught between two spaces where they don’t quite fit, yearning for a place to be. We all have our stormy seas to battle, but don’t let it extinguish your fire. Keep seeking your place.
Official version contains written and charted instructions, photos of the design for reference, tables with stitch counts for different sizes, schematics.
