This lusciously textured, reversible, unisex hat works up quickly in Tunisian crochet - perfect for both advanced beginners and experienced TC-ers!The pattern has been tested in all sizes. Pattern PDF includes a 12-page photo tutorial for special stitches and techniques (including almost invisible seaming) as well as tips for adjusting brim fit and using more colors.
Instructions are given for both a fitted or a slouchy beanie.
The hat is a companion piece to the Tunisian Etude scarf, available here
. You may like to make the scarf first to get familiar with the pattern - after that, the hat will be a breeze :)
Both sides of the hat are very different yet equally attractive, so there is no “wrong side”. Stretchy Tunisian ribbing forms a brim that can be adjusted to the wearer’s head.
I enjoy designing decorative hat crowns, but I chose the most unobtrusive crown shaping for this hat so that the stitch pattern could flow up smoothly, on both sides of the fabric.
Using 2 different colors (in both ribbing and body) adds a whole new dimension to the appearance of the hat - the possibilities are endless. And as you need less yarn in each color, it’s great for stash-busting too!Yarn
