Construction and Size
For illusion knitting, when the hat is viewed straight on, the colors will form stripes. But when the hat is viewed from an angle, the words—Don’t Blink—will be revealed (they read all the way around the hat). Pattern includes both written directions as well as charts.

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner
As far as the knitting itself, you just use knit and purl stitches. It’s the order they are placed in that is most important.

US 7 / 4.5 mm needles
Stitch marker

Thank you to my test knitters (ftmhling, dambird, gcolby1, and finishyourrow) and tech editor (kwunder) who provided valuable feedback.
