“The original “right side” of Quill shows careful, possibly timid steps, back and forth towards the crown. When I was done, and turned it “wrong side” out to weave in the last end, I noticed that the arrows took on a new depth, charging forward and back in a determined gait.” This reversible, textured hat is my new everyday go to hat. I hope you love it as much as I do!

Yarn: 100g/200yd worsted weight yarn

Suggested Yarn: Stone Wool Cormo (100g/200yd) in Ozark 02

Suggested Needles: US 6/4mm and US 8/5mm 16in/40cm circulars, and a longer length for magic loop or DPNs for the crown shaping

Gauge (worked over stockinette/after blocking): 22 sts and 29 rows = 4in/10cm using larger needles

Finished Measurements: 19in/48.5cm unstretched circumference; 9 ½in/24cm height

Techniques to Indulge In: Knitting, purling, working in the round, crown shaping, following a chart (if desired ;)

Errata for magazine print version: Rnd 42: ^P12, {k1, p1} twice; repeat from ^ to last stitch of the round (ending with a k1 on the final repeat). Place a new BOR marker so that your round now begins with the last stitch of the round (the final p1)..
