Pattern Description:

Amina is an enticing colourwork hat, with "just enough" slouch to look good on a wide range of heads.

Inspired by geometric patterns on the tiles of Turkish palaces, the simple colourwork motif is accentuated by a contrasting raw edge, and gathered crown, making this hat both quick to knit and exciting to wear.
