Undulating texture echoes Arabic geometric art in this representation of the confluence of styles from Cordoba, Spain, under Moorish occupation between the 9th and 11th centuries. This turban-style hat is knit in one piece, beginning with a singularly cabled band that is worked flat, and then grafted together. The crown is picked up from this band and worked in the round, creating a seamless accessory in four sizes. Stitch pattern is both written and charted.
