THE PEACE LILY hat pattern is first of all a knit-one-purl-one pattern. It´s a fast knit using Aran-weight yarn, perfect for a last-minute knitted gift.

Love the seamless transition from ribbed pattern to the crown decreases, which are part of the pattern too. The hat is worked up quickly and fully reversible. Two versions are given: without a brim as a modern beanie or a longer version to be folded over (using a second skein of yarn).

Wear The Peace Lily hat for impenetrable warmth and for a hip accessory. Wear it one way out or the other, cuffed or uncuffed and slouchy… The pattern is like three hats in one!
Use neutral colors, tonal/ solid or variegated / gradient. The pattern is so addictive, I could not resist to knit three hats in one go!
