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.

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.
