Ok, let’s get this out of the way right up front…it’s reversible. It’s reversible, and not just in the ‘looks the same on both sides’ sort of way. It looks totally different (and, if I may say so, totally awesome) on both sides. Especially the crowns…would you look at those? They fill me with glee!

For you, who are no doubt more fashionable and more organized than I am, this means you get to decide which side you like best and show that one off. For me? Well for me it means I can yank my hat out of my coat pocket and shove it on my head on the way to the mailbox and not worry about talking to my neighbor for ten minutes with an inside out hat on my head (again, this is not something that would happen to you…because you totally have your act together and would never have that problem).

And no, no before you ask it isn’t any harder to work reversible cables than it is to work regular cables. The process is exactly the same! Think about it…all you’re doing for cables is setting some stitches aside for a moment, working some other stitches, and then working the stitches you set aside. That’s really all cables are, working stitches out of order. And that’s true for reversible cables as well. Promise! You can totally do this!

This is perfect for you if:

  • You once put your hat on inside out and didn’t realize it until after you talked to people you’re totally going to see again for a solid ten minutes and the memory of that haunts you to this day (or, um, you just like reversible things)
  • You absolutely must know how those cables work

It’s not for you if:

  • You don’t like charts (the pattern uses charts)
  • You hate swatching (you need to swatch to check your needle size)

The picture down at the bottom shows some matching mitts that will be coming out later in February. If you want a heads up when they come out, you can sign up for that right over here!

Oh and yes, you will be able to buy both patterns together for a discount when the mitts are out. But don’t worry, that all still totally works if you buy the hat now and the mitts when they come out…ravelry is awesome and makes that work for us! Just be sure you’re logged into your ravelry account when you buy them and it will all work like a dream!
