Tāniko Cowl by Aroha Knits | One pattern. Five different choices. Infinite Creativity. The Tāniko Colorwork cowls is a pattern where YOU get to chose which stitch pattern you wish to use for your special cowl. There are five different stitch motifs in this pattern, each featuring my interpretation of traditional Māori weaving motifs, called tāniko. Each motif has it’s own meaning, which is covered in the pattern. Accessible to first time colorwork knitters, and fun for stranded knitting fans, there’s something for all knitters here. As these cowls are pretty quick knits and hard to put down, they make great gifts for the winter season or a handy emergency knit when the weather turns cold all of a sudden. Can you knit all five versions?

Gauge: 20 sts x 26 rows per 4 in./10 cm in St. st with suggested needle size and after blocking.

Finished Measurements: Approximately a circumference of 24 in./61 cm and a height of 11 in./28 cm

Materials Used: 

  • DK/8-ply
  • Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok (100% Fine Highland Wool ; 150g / 370yds / 338m).
  • MC yarn: 50g (125 yds./115 m) of No. 1303 Highland Fleece.
  • BC yarn: 6g of No. 1305: October Sky, No. 1320: Spring Ice, No. 1318: Thermal Spring, No. 1308: Golden Meadow, No. 1309: Earth Ivy, No. 1306: Wild Thyme. 36g (90 yds./80 m) total used.
  • Substitution Info: a wool base is best for this type of project. I highly encourage you to get creative with the colorway combinations! In my sample I used six different colorways for the motif using mini hanks which may not be accessible - so use a variegated or gradient yarn to have some fun.
