Malabrigo Quickie: Amber Twist Hat by Natalya1905
While some parts of the world are starting to get warm, other parts are still in the grips of the cold and half of the world is heading into winter, so it's the perfect time for a cozy new hat. Designer Natalya has taken a single beautiful skein of Dos Tierras in Ochre and crafted a fun hat featuring cables and texture and named it the Amber Twist Hat.
When asked about her inspiration, Natalya had the following to say:
Amber Twist is a cozy, slightly slouchy beanie hat, featuring a tubular cast-on, a classic ribbed brim, delicate zigzag columns and subtle cables. The hat is knit in the round from the bottom up and sized to fit most adults. Working on this design, I wanted to showcase the beauty of Malabrigo Dos Tierras, its flawless softness and perfect stitch definition. 'It's so gorgeous,' I gasped when I first saw this yarn in a hank. 'It's so lightweight and squishy,' whispered my model... Amber Twist is a quick and easy project. I truly hope you will like it and can't wait to see it in many different colors, bright or neutral. I'm sure all your hats will be stunningly beautiful.
Like the designer, I cannot wait to see the other colors that knitters choose for this hat. I am pretty sure that it will look great in just about anything! Honestly, I can see knitting this one up in several different colors and never getting bored.
