Korra is named for the avatar in the Season 2 of the Avatar. As the avatar, Korra’s role is to maintain balance, and so this Hat not only features aspects of each of the Elemental Hats but also provides a chance to create your own version, all the while being mindful of the balance within the fabric.

Featuring short row colourwork, each of the Elemental Hats is knit sideways and grafted. Available as a single pattern or as part of the Elemental collection.


Hat Description

Korra is a sideways knit garter stitch Hat featuring short row colourwork. It has leaves on stalks all the way around, every leaf at a different height. Each leaf is separated by a single ridge stripes, with both the leaves and stripes being worked in the same colour as the brim. It has a gently gathered crown.
