“Teenaa te mana o Rehua”. Behold the greatness of Rehua. Maori proverb, quoted by chiefs when making gifts.
Rehua is the god of kindness, a star god linked to the star Antares. He is one of the oldest and ancient Maori deities, who dispersed gloom and sorrow from the minds of men.
As a Giver Fibre Muse, Rehua would be one of your Muses. As a soul who knits as a form of selflessness, you know all too well the magical and healing power of giving someone a thoughtful gift.
Atawhai (Te Reo Maori for kindness) is a quick colorwork project with a cozy double folded brim that makes for a lovely little gift for a loved one. The sample was knit up in a classic grey + white combo, but the color combo can easily be personalized towards the recipient of the gift (do they have a favorite football team? Or alma mater school colors?). These customizations add in extra thoughtfulness that really makes the recipient feel loved.
