Venture Hat knitting pattern
Venture outside your comfort zone—the place you have known, the things you have seen, the patterns you have knitted, leave it all behind and wander into the unknown, and embrace the uncertainty.
The kūmara, also known as the sweet potato, served as a common food source for the Māori before the arrival of the Europeans. The Māori showed respect to the plant in their textile arts and crafts, through a simple geometric motif pattern resembling the leaves of this potato plant, called “rau kūmara”. This is a simple, uncomplicated hat, knit-bottom up, featuring the rau kūmara motif on the body.
