Purchase both the Opposite Day Cowl & Hat patterns and receive a $2 discount! No code needed and purchases do not have to be made at the same time, the discount will be automatically applied any time the second pattern in the set is purchased.

A textured hat with a playful, slipped stitch, colorwork pattern. Directions are provided to work the stitch pattern with stripes or without, creating two very different effects. The yellow & grey sample uses only slipped stitches for colorwork meaning you are only ever working with one color at a time. The teal & green sample has just one stranded round every 4th round making it an easy introduction to stranded knitting for a beginner. Pick up the matching cowl pattern to make a set with reversed colors as shown in the photos!
