This pattern can be found in my 2016 book Double or Nothing: Reversible Knitting for the Adventurous.

My new book wouldn’t be innovative if I didn’t begin introducing some new concepts. Double-knit intarsia is one of those, and while I’m at it, why not figure out how to do it in the round?

I modified Anne Berk’s methods (with her blessing) and came up with this 6-color hat. Don’t worry; it’s intarsia, so only 2 colors are used at a time.

This hat is about 8.5” from brim to crown and 18” in circumference. Don’t worry; it’s super stretchy and fits my 23” head as well as my models’ smaller heads. As worked for the sample, this pattern uses less than half of each 25 g mini-skein, so you will have enough yarn to make it taller or possibly knit a second one.
