Starry clusters pop against a dark sky – but just reverse it to get on a different wavelength entirely. Using a solid colour for the clusters and a variegated one for the background shifts the focus to the garter ridges.

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.
