A Useful Diversion Kit
A Useful Diversion by Elizabeth Felgate is totally reversible, deep cuffed, and fast to knit, the simple switches in direction make this highly diverting to knit without making it too taxing.
Charts and written instructions for main pattern and crown decreases. Links to tutorials for suggested cast on.
Choose a size approx. 10-15cm (4 -6 in) less than your actual head size for a snug fit (sample is shown with 11cm negative ease). Hat lengths are with brim unfolded. Be sure to measure from the top of your crown to the base of your ear to check the required length and work additional ribbing if required (more info on this in pattern).
