There was an error in a free version of the pattern, in R73 on a chart should be CDD instead of k2tog.

This design has been commissioned by a friend, who makes the most delicious chocolate and refuses to wear ugly chef’s caps. Kakao is cocoa in Ukrainian. It’s a very light and breathy reversible spring-summer beanie. If made from mohair, silk, fingering weight wool or cashmere, it would be a great light and warm beanie. Worked
in a round on circular or DPNL.

Stitches & techniques: knit (k), purl (p), yarn over (yo), knit 2(3) together (k2tog, k3tog), slip slip knit (SSK).

Size: one size (to fit 54-58 cm head circumference).

Yarn: Vivchari Etno Cotton 1500, 35g, ca. 265 m, 70% cotton, 30% linen, held twice to achieve fingering weight; or any similar fingering yarn.

Tools: 3.0 mm circular or DPNL needles, 1 stitch marker.

Gauge: 24 sts and 36 rows in 10 cm with stockinette stitch after blocking.

Please note, the pattern has only been test knitted by me.
