Ever wanted to wear the entire solar system on your head? Well now you can! Heliocentric is an incredibly warm and cosy hat, worked with the double-knitting technique, creating a hat that is twice as thick, twice as snuggly, and twice the fun of a normal knitted hat.

It is also completely reversible, so you get two hats in one, and can choose whichever colour scheme suits your mood or your outfit!

All of the decreases are worked into the pattern, so that the hat shapes itself effortlessly at the crown, without unsightly seams.

Not a problem: This pattern contains full and detailed instructions and tutorials giving you all the information you’ll need to make your very own Heliocentric, and you’ll be a double-knitter in no time!

Techniques included:
Double-knitted increases and decreases
Non-mirrored double-knitting

The pattern also contains links to special video tutorials to help you with all of the techniques you will need for this hat.
