Mautinoa by Malia Mae Joseph is the July Shawl pattern for the Westknits Yarn-A-Long 2022. It becomes available for purchase as an individual pattern in January 2023.
Stitch patterns with extraordinary visual appeal really make my heart swell. I find new stitch tricks and interesting or unexpected results a huge part of my motivation as a knitter. In Mautinoa, a shawl named after my father, I hope you will be challenged and excited to get each new section because of the interesting and unexpected look of each stitch pattern. Mautinoa means “to be confident” in my father’s native language of Samoan and I am confident that this shawl will soon become one of your favorite makes!
