Dalmayr is worked in the round from brim to crown. It features panels of Bavarian Twisted Stitch cables and the crown shaping is integrated into the patterning. Hat can be blocked as either a beanie or a tam. This hat can be worked to great affect in a variety of yarns, but something with a high percentage of wool and good elasticity will work best. Choose a smooth, worsted spun yarn for superb stitch definition or a lofty, woolen-spun yarn for three-dimensionality and exceptional lightness.
