Mi Amaro features a bold color and distinct lines in a twisted stitch cable pattern. I’d been eyeing this motif (by the amazing Norah Gaughan) as a hat design for a bit, but it took me a while to figure out how I wanted play with it in crown shaping. The “swirl” of this pattern is just so gorgeous that I wanted to really bring it out as a feature.

The result is crisp and unique, and the hat looks great on any gender - see the test knits!

I chose Sea Change Fibers’ Seacliff Worsted, a hand-dyed Rambouillet yarn, so the fabric is soft and springy - and I went for a real statement color with this deep red, called Dala Horse.

Cables are worked as twists in the pattern, and the pattern is both charted and written out.


18.25(20,21.75)”/46.5(50.75,55)cm circumference around hat. 10.25”/26cm deep to top of crown, with brim unfolded.
Measurements based on finished fabric. Hat stretches when worn.

(I used a 220yd/201m skein of the Seacliff Worsted, in Dala Horse)

Worsted weight yarn needed. If substituting, choose a fiber with some memory in a subtle hand dye, solid, tweed or heather so the pattern will show up well.
