Carnauba Hat

$ 8.00

The Carnaúba Hat is a fun and interesting hat pattern, worked in a basket-weave cable stitch pattern in the round from brim to crown. 
The Carnaúba Hat was inspired by the palm tree of the same name, very common in the semi-arid region of Northeast Brazil. Also called the ‘tree of life’ for its many uses, such as medicinal teas, waxes and construction logs, it is also a very popular employed material in crafts in many local communities. Baskets, hats, boxes, lampshades, mats, are all woven using carnaúba leaves.
