Azula is named for the volatile fire bender from Season 1 of the Avatar. Flames twist and turn around the body of the Hat, with each form created by short rows and just a hint of garter stitch intarsia. Azula is the most challenging of the Elemental Hats, and is very much worthy of your patience.

Featuring short row colourwork, each of the Elemental Hats is knit sideways and grafted. The pattern is presented as a map for the short rows - a directional chart - that will help guide you through the pattern.

The Elemental book and eBook contain detailed photographic tutorials, and individual patterns contain download links for the tutorials.

Azula wurde nach einer der Hauptfiguren aus der ersten Episode der US-amerikanischen Fantasy-Zeichentrickserie „Avatar – Der Herr der Elemente“ benannt. Flammenförmige Farbmotive im Hauptteil der Mütze werden mit verkürzten Reihen und einem minimalen Anteil an kraus-rechter Einstrickarbeit geformt. Azula ist das technisch schwierigste aller Modelle aus der „Elemental“-Kollektion, das Ergebnis ist die Anstrengung jedoch mehr als wert.

Alle Mützen aus der „Elemental“-Kollektion werden seitwärts mit farbigen Akzenten in verkürzten Reihen gearbeitet und im Maschenstich zusammengefügt. Als Wegbegleiter durch die verkürzte-Reihen-Abschnitte enthält die Anleitung ein hilfreiches Strickrichtungsdiagramm.
