Four Directions by Kyle Kunnecke

Size Guide

Honoring the Navajo (Diné) people, the Four Directions hat features a water border symbolizing the cycle of life and eternal renewal, and four stripes representing the four directions and the daily repeating cycle of life; reminding us that each day we are offered the opportunity to begin anew.

This pattern requires basic knitting knowledge including: working in the round, simple stranded colorwork, creating jogless stripes and decreasing, all on double point needles.

Originally created with Navajo Churro wool, the hat also provides an opportunity to work with yarn spun from the fleece of the Navajo Churro; one of the oldest domesticated sheep breeds in North America now considered threatened by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy.
