The Alhambra Hat’s motif is inspired by the curls and diamonds
on the archways and walls of The Alhambra Palace in Spain.

The Alhambra Hat is a beanie that begins with a ribbed brim. Choose your own adventure: create a 4”/ 10cm ribbed brim turned up once halfway or a 6”/ 15cm brim that’s folded double. After the ribbed brim is complete, a fair-isle motif covers the main part of the hat decreasing to a point at the top of the hat.

This project is suitable for the adventurous fair-isle beginner.
