What is WanderKnit™?
WanderKnit™ is a destination-themed knitting package, inspired by locations around the globe. Knitters will have a chance to learn a bit about each destination, while being treated to location-inspired patterns and surprises along the way. There will be new destinations each quarter, watch for where we'll travel next! Each destination will have a representative button which can be sewn onto your WanderKnit tote, much like a pin in a map!
A little bit about Morocco:
Traveling through Morocco, we discover a country of diverse landscapes and cultures! In colors reminiscent of spice markets, the sharf, cowl, and mitts designs are each inspired by elements of Moroccan culture, including the “ogee” pattern. Explore these designs with soft, versatile Madrona by HiKoo®
Kits are limited, and the patterns are only available through the kits until December!
Tell me about the WanderKnit™ Morocco designs!
Worked in Madrona the featured patterns include:
This cowl features the intricate, geometric Ogee pattern—a pleasing flow of two continuous S-shaped curves that narrow and widen. The colors were inspired by Morocco’s Blue City, Chefchaouen, nicknamed “the blue pearl of Morocco.”
These mitts feature an undulating surface design that mimics the Ogee pattern with a simple cable that adorns the back portion of the design. Knit using the Magic Loop method, you can customize the length to your preference.
Reminiscent of hooded Moroccan kaftans, this long color-blocked shawl/scarf features carefully placed German Short Rows, so you can wear this piece as flowing neckwear, or pull the center up over your head like a hooded scarf.
Madrona is a fingering-weight blend of 30% alpaca, 30% wool, 20% bamboo, and 20% nylon. Each beautiful cake is an ample 402 yards/100g of cloud-like softness!
