Finally, a sister pattern to my popular Reversus hat, Inverto are similarly knit inside-out to maximise the use of the knit stitch for a quick and easy project. Only the lace panel is worked in purl. Once finished, turn your mitts inside-out to reveal the pretty lace panel nestled in a bed of reverse stocking stitch.
Designed for White Gum Wool 4ply, a lofty and surprisingly warm 100% sustainable Australian merino yarn. Expertly hand-dyed by Augustbird Yarns.

Skills required
Suitable for an advanced beginner or intermediate knitter. You need to know how to knit in the round, work twisted stitches, increase and decrease and create yarn overs. The lace is worked on the purl side so you should be comfortable in ‘reading’ your knitting.
