This simple hat with a lil bit o’ style is named for a world-class climbing area in Catalunya, Spain. Crowded with climbers, the endless cliffs surrounding Siurana soar 35 meters and higher. The hat’s 6-stitch cable pattern brings to mind the hidden pockets typical of Spanish limestone. This is the 3rd hat in the Destination Series. Named after climbing areas around the world, each pattern bears some physical resemblance to the crag it is named after. Look for Antalya (Twist Collective Winter 2010) and St. Léger (Brooklyn Tweed Wool People Volume 1).

Knit in the round, Siurana has a generous brim for pulling down over cold ears (and necks) and a close body with just the right amount of looseness.

A solid or semi-solid yarn is recommended.
