Afreet is a powerful, winged creature from Arabic folklore that is related to fire. This hat gets its name from that creature. This cool, complex colorway puts me in the mind of the last remaining coals of a fire. The yarn provides beautiful stitch definition for the unique cable motif. This piece matches the Afreet cowl designed as collaboration with The Verdant Gryphon for the lovely Shades of Winter 2014 collection.

Details: Afreet Embers is knit from the brim. The top is seamed so that the cable pattern can be uninterrupted. Decreases begin as soon as the brim ribbing is complete. The cable motif is a combination of 2x2 cables, ribbing, and reverse stockinette. Flat the hat will have points due to the seam at the top. When being worn these should flatten out as seen in the photos.
