Treat yourself to some special yarn and knit this gorgeous little hat and mitts set, featuring slipped stitches and delicate cables. This hat has been inspired by the Neue Synagoge (‘New Synagogue’) in Berlin. It’s one of the most beautiful buildings I know with its graceful lines and the shimmering domes. So what lay nearer than to turn the pattern of the main dome into a cosy hat for winter?

And because pattern and yarn are so addictive, I just had to add some fingerless mitts, too. The Dome Mitts can be found here.

Sizes: S (M, L) to fit head circumferences of 52 (56, 60)cm / 20.5 (22, 23.5)“.

Nimm ein schönes Garn und stricke Dir oder Deinen Lieben diese tolle Mütze aus Hebemaschen und filigranen Zopfmustern. Die Inspiration zu den geschwungenen Linien der Mütze gab die Neue Synagoge in Berlin, an der ich oft vorbeiradle.
Besonders die wunderschöne große Kuppel hat mich nicht losgelassen und so entstand die Idee zum Muster dieser Mütze.

Größen: S (M, L) für einen Kopfumfang von 52 (56, 60)cm.

Schwierigkeitsgrad: Mittel. Man sollte wissen, was eine verschränkte Masche ist. Gut geeignet für erste Versuche zum Thema Zopfmuster!
