The “Diné Motif Design” is an adaption for the Rug Sweater by Junko Okamto, a knitting pattern.

This kit includes:

  • A high-quality, print color copy of the “Diné Motif Design.” (The design is also available as a free download.)
  • Six skeins of Gothfarm Yarn’s 100% Navajo-Churro wool yarn (4 skeins of Slate, 1 skein of Bone, 1 skein of Walnut)

The “Diné Motif Design” brings Navajo-Churro wool yarn and traditional Diné weaving motifs into another fiber realm: sweater knitting. The aim of this design is to center Diné artistry in a garment created from Navajo-Churro wool, highlighting a relationship between culture and sheep that has lasted for centuries.

NOTE: The kit only includes the “Diné Motif Design” and the yarn. You will need a copy of the Rug Sweater Pattern (available for free on Ravelry)  and knitting needles to knit your own sweater.
