This hat is named after Maurits Cornelius Escher better known as M.C. Escher. The design was inspired by his transformation woodcuts and by his Metamorphosis I Woodcut in particular. If you look at the body of the hat, the blocks might be facing up or down depending on the viewers perspective. This theme is common in many of Eschers works which play with the viewer’s perception of reality. The hat itself would look nice in many different contrasting colour combinations and is not a difficult knit.
