Pavuk means “spider” in Ukrainian, but we are not talking arachnids here. That same name we use for a traditional Christmas decoration — web-like mobiles made of straw. “Spiders” were meant to hang from the top of the ceiling in a corner called “pokut” (the corner decorated with icons, embroidered cloth etc). Just where the real spiders prefer to live. The “spider’s” mission was to absorb all the negative energy, purify the ambiance and bring happiness to the house. Every year during Christmas celebration the old spider was burned and a new one created. This craft has originated in Northern and Eastern Europe and can be found in most places, where grain growing (and straw) is a key component of people’s lives. In Poland they are known as pajaki, and himmeli in Finland.

This cropped V-neck vest is knit bottom-up in the round until the underarms and features stranded colourwork and a small intarsia section worked in the round. It also comes with an extended colourwork chart for a longer version, an optional slopped shoulder shaping and plenty of customisation options.
