Sprays of dipped stitches suggest a Venus fly trap, but on the reverse becomes more abstract and more mysterious. Either way, there’s a distinctly organic, almost vegetal impression to the crown, a highlight of this design.

Variegated yarns will look their best in this Hat, with the elongated stitches allowing each nuance of the changing colours to shine. Choose a solid contrast shade or go dippy with two wild colourways playing against each other.

Each Hat in the Inversion collection is worked sideways in two colours of DK weight yarn. The patterns can be adjusted for different head circumferences by adding or removing panels, and each pattern also includes an adjustment point for length. Each Hat is designed to be reversible and additional notes are included.

Available as a single pattern or as part of the Inversion collection. There’s a bundle discount available on this collection - simply add all of the single patterns to your cart, and the eBook itself, to get all of them for the cost of the eBook. If you purchase a single pattern separately the amount you’ve paid can be used as a discount towards the set.

Die Motive auf der Außenseite der Mütze erinnern an die Blüten der Venusfliegenfalle, die invertierte Version davon auf der Innenseite ist abstrakter und daher etwas geheimnisvoller. Ob so oder so getragen – die floralen Motive verleihen dem Oberkopf ein organisches Flair.
Diese Mütze macht sich am besten in Garnen mit Multicolor-Färbung – dadurch kommen die verlängerten Maschen in den verschiedenen Farbnuancen erst richtig gut zur Geltung! Zu kombinieren entweder mit einer Unifarbe als Kontrast, oder wild und wagemutig in zwei sich umspielenden lebhaften Multifärbungen.

Alle Mützen der Inversion-Kollektion werden seitwärts aus zwei Farben in 6-fach Sockenwollstärke gestrickt. Die Mützen lassen sich durch Hinzufügen oder Weglassen von Segmenten für verschiedene Kopfumfänge modifizieren; alle Anleitungen enthalten außerdem Hinweise für die Tiefenanpassung. Sämtliche Mützen dieser Kollektion sind wendbar und durch in der Anleitung enthaltene nützliche Tips und Hinweise leicht nachzuarbeiten.
