Rich texture suggests ancient stone walls in this classic sideways-knit Hat, with a stitch pattern that lends itself well to a range of yarns, from dramatic hand-dyes to smooth solids. Just as a standard masonry pattern will yield different, but always beautiful results depending on the stone used, Muratura can be made new over and over again.

Published in 3 sizes, it can be easily adjusted for a perfect fit. Both written and charted instructions are provided, with illustrated tutorials for the special construction techniques (provisional cast-on, short rows and grafting/Kitchener stitch).
