Knit from end to end with no joining, this 2-layer, 2-color hat pattern is cozy and reversible. The hat tops have 4-petal flower shaping. A lightly lacey, peak and valley type stitch pattern allows the color of the inner layer to peek through. A simple picot edging helps you transition from the first layer to the second as you knit and makes the fold at the bottom of the brim.
The stitch pattern is both charted and written.
Directions for the shaping at the top of the hat is written in needle neutral terms and can be worked on dpns or circular needles with your favorite small circumference circular knitting method.

My patterns are designed, not just written down, because I want your project to be a success!
Before knitting begins, I sketch ideas, test yarns, stitch swatches, create charts, do math and consider a variety of skills and construction methods. Each pattern uses standard knitting terminology and notations, is edited for technical accuracy and has a logical, easy-to-read format.
I do the work so you can relax and enjoy the knitting.
