I designed this pattern to accompany my Honu Hand Towel patterns. Honu is the Hawaiian word for Sea Turtle. Sea Turtles play a very important role in Hawaiian culture and are seen as protectors. They hold an extremely special place in my heart after I was lucky enough to snorkel with these magnificent and, sadly, endangered creatures.
I taught myself how to knit out of a book several years ago, and I haven't stopped since.
