Brickwork gets even more compelling in two colours, and the same is true for this variation on the Muratura Hat. Depending on which side is viewed, the fabric may be more suggestive of the bricks, or of the mortar between; either way the simple technique of knitting into the row below builds a strong statement.

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 used as a discount towards the set.
