These two designs, much like their namesakes, are brother and sister. Knit from the top down, the hats are a great way to get the most out of your yarn yardage. (Try knitting the ribbed edge in a contrasting colour if you run out of yarn!) The slip-stitch pattern on a background of reverse stockinette is an ideal mate for busy self-striping yarns.

The PAT version is a snug-fitting unisex cap.
The JULIA version is a loose-fitting beret.

Instructions given for three adult sizes.
