You will receive a printed pattern in the mail. If you would prefer to print your own patterns, for immediate knitting gratification, please consider popping into my Ravelry store and buying the pattern from there instead.
The Te Moana River runs out of the foothills of the Southern Alps to the ocean. Moana is the maori word for the ocean. The gorgeous deconstructed cables you will create in this beautiful squishy wrap reflect the ripples of the ocean.
Te Moana Wrap is designed for snuggling in. It’s a gorgeous big knit that envelops you and keeps you warm. It’s a fun pattern that keeps you interested, while still being simple enough to knit in front of the TV or while chatting to your favourite people. Just you wait till you get to the end! Ooh that bind off is fun!
I adore this bespoke Foxhow yarn! It’s a squishy, bouncy blend of suri alpaca and polwarth fibre made in collaboration between Tarndie and Great Ocean Road Mill in Victoria, Australia. Need to squish your own? Check out happygoknitty.co.nz.

Welcome to the Hanging Rock Roost Store.
All our knitting patterns are designed by Vanessa, who takes her inspiration from the world around her. Sometimes nature is the influence, other times she may see a garment on her travels and commit it to memory to recreate on her needles. They are all well-written and uncomplicated, and many of them have charts to follow along with the written pattern.
In most instances, you have a choice of PDF or printed patterns. The PDF is an automatic download to the email address you supply.
As of August 2020, Hanging Rock Roost now also sells hand-dyed yarn.
In time, the plan is to design patterns to sell with the yarn as kits for your knitting convenience. While we are working on that, you get to check out the yarn we have already dyed up. We will match up yarns with patterns we think will work well in the meantime.
You'll also find a selection of handmade project bags, hand-drawn stationery creations, and enamel pins here.
