  • This double-layered hat is worked seamlessly from end to end in a single piece. Casting on a small number of stitches, the hat begins with a top-down crown (shaped with increases). Once your full hat circumference has been reached, you will knit circularly to the desired length for your size and style (Beanie or Watchcap), then work a second crown (shaped with decreases) that mirrors the first to achieve a completed hat that resembles an elongated egg. Fold the finished piece in upon itself at the halfway point, punching one crown into the second crown, to create a double-thick, reversible stockinette cap that’s both warm and stylish.
