Bara Donates Nirumiktuq Hat Design for Nunavut Qiviut Knitters

Bara, of Kugluktuk, has designed and donated the "Checkerboard Warmth" Nirumiktuq hat design. Nirumiktuq means 'soft and warm' in Inuktut. The 50/40/10 Qiviut Blend and Arctic Fox Yarn works well for hats as the merino in the blend has the elasticity required to retain its shape. The qiviut and Arctic fox (or Arctic Hare - you choose!) in this design increases the softness and warmth and develops a soft halo over time. You can also choose to skip the white pattern and make a plain hat, or use another colour of qiviut yarn instead of Arctic Fox or Arctic Hare. Thank You Bara! 

 

This is the pattern used to make the first accessory ever with Nunavut Qiviut Yarn way back when the 'Nunavut Qiviut' name or project didn't exist.  In 2014 my sole purpose was to figure out how to make qiviut yarn from fibre sourced locally in order to knit a Christmas gift for my loved spouse.  This original scarf is in a little shell pattern made by my mom.  It uses a 3-ply, 2oz skein of 100% qiviut yarn by Nunavut Qiviut.  It would be made even more luscious using 2 skeins.
