This is a hat with a double life; it can be worn as a snug cowl or you can gather the drawstrings threaded through the top edge to turn it into a hat. It is knitted sideways in a reverse stocking stitch rib which spirals round the hat and gives it extra stretch.

The hat fits an adult but tips on adapting the pattern for other sizes are included.

All my Ravelry patterns are free to download but, if you enjoy them, please consider making a donation to the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation, a charity which funds research and supports the families of children with a liver disease. You can do this easily by going to my fundraising page www.justgiving.com/frankiesknittedstuff

Happy Knitting!
