Pattern for a gorgeous, MC Escher inspired hat depicting two interwoven flocks of birds. A mathematical sequence - that I figured out so you don’t have to:) - lends the hat its vibrant, dynamic look. Choose any two contrasting colors for a striking end result that will turn other people’s heads while keeping yours warm and fashionable!

Pattern contains:

  • detailed written instructions.
  • clear explanations for all the technical elements used, such as changing colors.
  • photo tutorials for each step.
  • a chart for row 1 - 24 to ensure that you REALLY get the bird sequence down pat:).

The hat is worked sideways, so size is easily adjustable.
Suitable for: advanced intermediate crocheters and up.

Because this pattern is worked one way, with the ends worked in at the end of every row (or the end of the pattern if you prefer), it takes a bit longer to make than a regular hat would. 3-5 sittings should do it, depending on your crochet speed.
The result is totally worth it in my opinion, but if you already know you’re absolutely not up for that, this is your chance to get away unscathed:).

As always, contact me at if you experience any problems. If you want to sell finished items based on this pattern, I’m okay with that. I do kindly ask that you let me know – and of course you get extra brownie points for a pattern credit or link back!
