Rosazura is an asymmetrical art deco cloche worked in a light worsted weight yarn. It features garter stitch bands radiating from a framed staghorn cable. Rosazura was created using Berroco Lustra, which provides a subtle sheen and excellent stitch definition. Basic knowledge of cabling and short-row shaping is required. Ravelry recently featured a great article for creating German short rows which can be found here.

The name Rosazura is a portmanteau of the Italian words for rose and blue. It is named for my best friend of eighteen years. She is a smart, funny, adventurous woman, and I am lucky to bask in her unconditional love. Happy Birthday Rosie!

Errata: I used German short rows in Rosazura, and the pattern does not explain how to work them. Please refer to the linked Ask a Knitter article for instructions, pictures and video. I’m sorry if this has caused any trouble!

Please note: Rosazura is generously sized and will accommodate a lot of hair. It measures 10” from CO to brim, for a shorter hat, omit some of the plain stockinette between rows 24 to 38.

Rosazura es un sombrero de campana estilo arte deco. Luce cintas de punto musgo irradiando de una trenza de cuernos de venado. Rosazura fue creada usando la lana Berroco Lustra, que tiene un brillo sutil y puntaje nítido. Para tejer Rosazura se necesita conocimiento de hileras cortas y de puntos en suspensión para crear trenzas.

El nombre Rosazura es una combinación de las palabras rosa y azul en Italiano. Fue nombrada por mi mejor amiga de dieciocho años. Es una mujer inteligente, graciosa y intrépida, y tengo la suerte de conocerla. Feliz Cumpleaños Rosie!
