The Andalusian Risa is a lightly textured knit hat that was inspired by a year of teaching abroad in Spain. While there, I fell in love with the city of Andalucía (Andalusia). Warm beaches, flamenco dancing, tapas bars open late into the night, and the sound of laughter in the air.

The colors I’ve chosen for this knitted hat pattern reflect these memories for me and now I share them with you.

Easy enough for advanced beginners, this knit hat pattern requires only knits and purls. It has enough texture to keep things interesting and is perfect for any member of your family.

This knit hat pattern works well with any worsted weight or aran weight yarn. Gauge is not super critical but is always recommended.

SUGGESTED YARN: Cascade 220 (220 yards / 200 meters), 100% Peruvian Highland Wool.

YARDAGE NEEDED: Approximately 135 yards / 123 meters. You’ll have enough yarn leftover to knit a taller, slouchier hat or add a pompom.
