Melissa is a reversible hat, so named after its striking bee-like feature. Melissa (μέλισσα) is the Greek word for honey bee! Worked primarily in reverse stockinette, it has a textured panel that merges to a point at the crown. On the one side, this feature looks like a beehive, while on the reverse it looks like bees in flight. So it’s like getting two hats in one! Melissa is a simple but fun knit, perfect for all skill levels!
