Travajo Tejido or Sacred Works, is inspired by a friend’s story of his Aztec heritage. Using bright colors that represented the bright culture of the Aztecs, I wanted to create a hat that would emulate his story.


The hat is knitted in the round, starting off with twisted ribbing, then moving into Fair Isle. The pattern is charted and worked 5 times to create the hat. The hat can be easily made larger or smaller by going up or down a needle size.


Helpful tip: when carrying the yarn for a fair bit, wrap the contrasting color every 5 stitches. Be sure to not knit too tightly, this will cause puckering of the fabric.


Dos Tierras has enough yardage that it will make 2 hats by reversing the main colors.


Techniques used:

  • knitting in the round
  • twisted ribbing
  • chart reading
  • Fair Isle/stranding work
