Mayla is a feminine slouchy beret knitted in the round, bottom up, with little bobbles and lacy cables that twists at the crown creating a beautiful floral form resembling the variety of water lily known as “Mayla”.
Tools needed: size 5 and 5,5 mm (US 8 and 9) circular/dpn needles; cable needle, 1 marker, tapestry needle
Material needed: approx 180-270 m (197-295 yards) of worsted yarn that give you the above gauge
Pattern Difficulty: Intermediate - skills required: knitting in the round (using dpn on the last rounds for crown), increasing, decreasing, knitting and purling through the back loop, basic lace and cables knitting knowledge. In the pattern I explain how to make bobbles without turning your work.
Take time to check your gauge. If necessary you may adjust needles size in accordance to your head size, taste or style.

For the remainder of the month of January, 50% of pattern sale proceeds will be donated for relief efforts in Haiti. 16.01.2010
ETA: During 16-30 of January I sold 2 Quadra’s and 5 Mayla’s, instead of sending 50% (10.5 € - 13.5 USD) of the profits I rounded up and sent 20 € (25.8 USD) to Haiti via AMI (a Portuguese Non Governmental Organization, private, non-profitable and independent) that worked in the field helping Haiti people. Thank you so much!
