The Niefling hat is now live on Ravelry and Payhip!

Plain double knitting transitions effortlessly into basic brioche ribbing in this versatile, reversible hat design. How will you style yours? Light side or dark side? Slouchy or cuffed?

As the name may imply, this design was inspired by my own niece and nephews. It was born of a desire to cater to the whims of a fickle 5-year-old, a sullen 17-year-old, and all tastes in between. With 4 different ways to wear the same hat, everyone should be able to find a style that suits. Plus it’s sized for the entire family!

Video tutorials are included for the two-color Italian cast on, double knitting, and brioche, making this an excellent skill building project for the adventurous beginner!

The original samples were made with Merinolux DK from Barker Wool (formerly Chasing Rabbits Fiber Co.) in the Austin and Empower colorways, but if purple's not your thing, I have it on good authority that Austin's vibrant streaks of color would also pair well with other tonal colorways, such as Velvet, Clara, Crabapple, Tiger Lily, Staghorn, Olivine, Indigo, Gentle...
