Travel back in time when you wear the Inca Cat Hat. Inspired by cat motifs woven into border of the Incan textiles from Peru, this is the hat for cat lovers. This hat is knitted using stranded colorwork techniques. It has a two color ribbing. The cat and the wave pattern come from a garment panel, while the pattern on the crown was loosely adapted from a poncho. The little animal, a mythical creature, in the narrow band is from a mantle fragment.
The pattern instructions are clear and easy to work with, taking all the stress out of knitting a colorwork hat. The pattern features detailed written instructions, photos, and complete charts.
There is a matching Inca cat mittens pattern. The hat and mitten patterns are also available as a set. Die Anleitung ist auf deutsch erhältlich.
