Rich texture suggests ancient stone walls in this classic sideways-knit Hat, with a stitch pattern that lends itself well to a range of yarns, from dramatic hand-dyes to smooth solids. Just as a standard masonry pattern will yield different, but always beautiful results depending on the stone used, Muratura can be made new over and over again.

Published in 3 sizes, it can be easily adjusted for a perfect fit. Both written and charted instructions are provided, with illustrated tutorials for the special construction techniques (provisional cast-on, short rows and grafting/Kitchener stitch).

Muratura wird raffiniert seitwärts gestrickt, in einem tiefen Strukturmuster auf kraus rechtem Grund, das an Stuckarbeiten vergangener Zeiten erinnert.

Die Anleitung enthält 3 Größen. Dank ihrer Konstruktion lässt sich die Mütze leicht für andere Größen oder Maschenproben anpassen.

Die Anleitung enthält sowohl eine Strickschrift als auch reihenweise ausgeschriebene Anweisungen, außerdem illustrierte Kurse für die verwendete Konstruktionsmethode.
