One of my first tasks as an architect in Zurich was a façade study in Seefeld. When I looked at the houses in the Zurich neighbourhood, I noticed the wrought-iron balconies. Artfully crafted iron that is both decorative and functional.
Seefeld is both decorative and beautifully warm. The decorative cables play around the head.
The hat is knitted from the bottom up in the round. Cables and purl stitches alternate.
For Seefeld, I chose yak wool, which reflects the price range for flats in Seefeld. To show best the cable pattern, I recommend a solid colour.
