Imperceptions – Print


Imperceptions is a collection of Hats that uses unconventional stranded colourwork to create the illusion of manipulated fabric. With carefully placed colour and simple stitches, Imperceptions creates the impression of depth and movement on a flat surface, mimicking the complexities of construction techniques without altering a single stitch.

Each Hat in the Imperceptions collection is knitted bottom-up and in the round. The ideal yarn for these Hats is 4-ply or light sportweight, in a multi-plied fibre with some natural give, such as merino. The illusions look their best in two high-contrast colours.

Each of the patterns are provided in both written and charted format. The book contains detailed photographic tutorials for the techniques used.

About our Books

Woolly Wormhead books are more than just a collection of patterns – they’re comprehensive workshops packed with educational resources! These patterns will not only teach you how to create your own beautiful knitted Hats, they'll also teach you new skills and improve your knitting knowledge. In addition, the patterns are all multi-sized and professionally edited.

Each book in the zine series contains in-depth photo tutorials covering the key skills, and detailed instructions to make each Hat. With professional photography and a thoughtful layout, we've considered every step to help you make the most of the patterns and tutorials. We also offer live support via our forum, where we can answer any questions and provide help where needed.
