The Wave Breaker Hat & Mitts embody that moment when ripples swirl and the water calms. The motif takes inspiration from the Ngāru (wave) motif in traditional Māori designs. Within this design, the swirls reproduce the ripples caused by the canoe as it travels through the water.

These quick knits come together using three colors of sport-weight wool. Solid colors work best for this exercise in stranded knitting.

In this chaotic time, the Wave Breaker hat and mitts cuddle you into that peaceful space where the only waves are gentle ripples across the calm surface of the water. Select the colors of your ripples, download the pattern, and enjoy a peaceful afternoon of knitting.
