The difference between the two sides of this Hat is striking. Is the design a strong mosaic stitch grid, emphasised by short row wedges at the crown? Or is it a stripy beanie? Believe whatever you want to believe – just enjoy the ride.

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.
