Description

Azula is named for the volatile fire bender from Season 1 of the Avatar. Flames twist and turn around the body of the Hat, with each form created by short rows and just a hint of garter stitch intarsia. Azula is the most challenging of the Elemental Hats, and is very much worthy of your patience.

Featuring short row colourwork, each of the Elemental Hats is knit sideways and grafted. The pattern is presented as a map for the short rows - a directional chart - that will help guide you through the pattern.

Skills required: Knit & purl sts, short rows, provisional cast-on, grafting, chart reading

Note Sizing in this pattern is achieved through gauge. The sideways nature of this design creates a great deal of stretch, so do consider the negative ease.
