Scarves

All of the handknit Qiviut scarves come in village patterns derived from traditional aspects of village life and the Eskimo culture. It is possible to determine where an item was made simply by looking at the pattern. The scarves measure approximately 12" wide and four feet long. This is not an exact size, however, due to the fact that each knitter is an individual, allowing for the variation in size. Still the number of stitches in each scarf is the same and the knitting is of a very high quality. All patterns are copyrighted for the use of the members and are NOT for sale.

Stoles

Our handknit stoles come in two village patterns derived from traditional aspects of village life and the Eskimo culture. The stole may be draped on the shoulders or wrapped around the head, and measures approximately five feet long by 18 inches wide. This is not an exact size, however, due to the fact that each knitter is an individual, allowing for the variation in size. Still the number of stitches in the stole is the same and each stole is of a very high quality.
