Amici - Italian for ‘friends’.

Valentina of SnailYarn and I started our first collaboration last year in Hamburg. This year we will meet again in Berlin.

Berlin Knits is all about meeting friends, chatting, laughing and knitting, so we decided to put our heads together for a second collaboration.

With my friends in mind I designed this hat and cowl in a squishy, soft woolen yarn. New and old friends tested this set to complete the circle.

Some of them will be in Berlin too and some of them just in mind.

1 skein SnailYarn BFL/Masham DK (Bluefaced Leicester/Masham British wool, 100 gr-262yds/240m).
Sample shown in color: natural, approx. 131yds/120m.

Or any DK weight yarn, approx. 131-175yds (120-160m). For an additional pompom you need approx. 47yds/43m.

US 6 (4.0 mm) 16” (40 cm) circular needle or 32” (80 cm) for magic loop and/or dpns.
US 7 (4.5 mm) 16” (40 cm) circular needle or 32” (80 cm) for magic loop and/or dpns.
Or size to obtain gauge.
Stitch markers, cable needle, tapestry needle.

One cable pattern repeat (28 stitches x 12 rounds), blocked = 4.25” x 1.38” (10.75 x 3.5 cm).

Finished dimensions
Unstretched 17.3” (44 cm), fits approx. 20.5-22.5” (52-57 cm) circumference x 7.6“ (21 cm) height, from crown to CO.

Different sizes and fits can be achieved by altering brim height, yarn weight and/or needle size(s).

Pattern is easy to memorize and looks more complicated than is.

Special thanks to my lovely friends and testers! ❤️
