Morning Star was originally designed for our 2021 Celestial Countdown. A combo of an odd number of mini skeins and 1 full size skein. The story of Iipissoōwa”tsis and Morning Star is one of my favorite Blackfeet creation stories. You can find a version of the story here.
We have 4 different versions of the kits, in two different weights (DK and Fingering). All kits include 1 full size skein, 9 to 11 mini skeins (depending on the kit), hard copy of the pattern (with Ravelry download), and 4 stickers that correlate with the Morning Star story.
OG Morning Star Kit : This kit is what we originally created for the Celestial Countdown. The main color for this kit is Horse Belly and it comes with 11 mini skeins
Oosie Kit : This is a a palette of browns to yellow browns. Oosie is the Blackfeet word for 'booty'. Example would be 'Get your oosie over here'. This kit includes a new oatmeal color we are releasing this winter called 'Many Moons' for the Main Color.
Desert Tarot Kit : This kit is inspired by a tarot card deck I found in Santa Fe last summer. The Desert Illuminations Deck by Lindsay D. Williams is one of the stunning decks I have ever come across. It speaks to me in so many ways! The kit includes 11 mini skeins and the option to also include the Desert illuminations Deck (these are limited!). The main color for this kit is an undyed, natural.
Candi's Choice : Greens and pinks, is there any other choice Candi would make?!? This version of the cowl was knit up in Fingering weight, and because I didn't want it quite so long I made it out of 9 skeins vs. 11. The main color of this kit is Napi.
DK Weight Version : Pintler DK is 75% Merino and 25% Nylon
Fingering Weight Version : Squish Fingering is 100% Merino
- MC can not be swapped out for other colors. Mini's will make at least 2 cowls.
- If kits sell out, we will restock in late January
- As of now we don't have the Desert Illuminations Deck sold for separate purchase but we will in the future.
- Thank you to Robert Hall for the Blackfeet language and Jesslyn Starnes for the pattern layout and illustrations.
