Having been in love with the Islands for decades, I am a fervent student of Hawaiian history, culture, customs and of course, the people. The pattern is based on some Hawaiian tattoos and includes the geometric triangle designs flanking a wave crest center column. I hand-dyed the green yarn and paired it with black yarn to make the design stand out. The foot and back of the leg is another triangle pattern also based on Hawaiian tattoos. The brown/white version uses a hand-dyed reddish-brown yarn that reminds me of Hawaii’s famous ‘red-dirt’.
