Please note:
As my day job doesn’t leave me enough time to come up with something new and a EU law concerning VAT tax coming into effect in 2015 makes selling digital goods rather complicated, I chose to close my business & put everything I designed so far online for free.
Have fun with it. BUT: There will be no email support when you have problems/questions, as I won’t be around anymore.



Featuring detailed instructions on how to cast on and work in the doubleknitting technique!

Thanks to the doubleknitting technique you will end up with a fully reversible hat!. Apart from that doubleknitting is the perfect answer to problems with floats (fair isle), as the yarn will only ever be carried a maximum of two stitches. This results in a more stretchy fabric!

Coordinating mittens can be found here!
