Choose two colors of DK weight yarn for this reversible hat pattern. The main color is knit first in a basketweave stitch pattern for the outer layer of the hat. Then, pick up sts along the cast on edge with a contrast color and knit the inner layer in stockinette stitch. The inner layer peeks through the yarn over holes when you wear the hat with the basketweave stitches on the outside. Fold the brim for an extra warm layer. This pattern is beginner friendly and utilizes single skeins of DK weight yarn.
