Revel in evil, more or less, by sporting symbols of satanism and/or chaos on a comfy head accessory. The evil version has a full on devil-worshipping symbol around the body of the hat, the chaotic version features messy, random-looking lines along the bottom; chaos arrows point outwards from the crown center of both versions.

This basic hat is made with twisted stitches on a reverse stockinette stitch background, and is very much gender neutral - the evil version is sized specifically for an average adult male head size, which makes for a nice slouchy fit on a smaller female head.

This is part of the leethal Dark Trio - 3 different patterns for gender-neutral accessories, each with a little hidden evil. The trio also includes Jonathan the brioche goat scarf, and Andrew the good/evil fingerless mitts. (Each single pattern is $6; the whole trio is $12.)

The hats are designed in DK weight yarn, the chaotic version in two sizes (small/large) and the evil version in just one size (large) - sizing notes are included for adjusting gauge/weight to customize your size.

The stitch patterns are all charted and written, and a twisted stitches photo tutorial is included. The reverse stockinette body in the chaotic version can be worked as all knit stitches for easy knitting.
