About: Who says that fun and rewarding projects need to be needlessly complicated? Rich in texture, snug fit, and a simple and quick knit, the Kōpekapeka hat makes for a great project to work on for the upcoming fall season. Kōpekapeka is Maori for “zig-zag”, named after the zig-zag textured motif featured throughout the body of the hat. Just using a series of knit and purl stitches, beginner knitters can have their first hat made in a few days (while learning an advanced decrease technique!), whereas more seasoned crafters can enjoy the satisfaction of a quick knit. Pair it up with a rich color and yarn that can really allow the purl stitches to pop (high twist yarns are recommended), and you’ll have a simply delightful hat making home in your everyday handmade wardrobe.


Needle: US size 7 (4.5mm) 16” (32cm) circular needle and size 7 DPNs.
Yarns Used: mYAK yarns Tibetan Cashmere Worsted (Worsted / 10 ply ; 100% Cashmere goat ; 125 yards / 50 grams). 1 skein in Madder.
Yardage: 125 - 200 yards. One skein can be used for this project but it is very gauge-dependent. If you are a loose knitter, 2 skeins will be required for this project.
Gauge: 20 sts and 32 rows = 4” / 10cm after blocking in Textured St.
Other Notions: Stitch markers, darning needle.
