Which way is up? Although this pattern seems to grow from the brim to the crown, in fact it is knit sideways with just one colour per row, like all the other Hats in the Convergence collection. Clever short-row engineering ensures that these large chunks of solid colour don’t disrupt the mosaic technique.

Each Hat in the Convergence collection is worked sideways in two colours of DK weight yarn. The patterns can be adjusted for different head circumferences by adding or removing panels, and each pattern also includes an adjustment point for length. Available as a single pattern or as part of the Convergence collection.


Hat Description

Uprising is a sideways knit comfort fit Hat, a beanie with a little slouch. It uses mosaic slipped stitch colourwork to create a motif that is repeated around the Hat of angular unfurling trees that grow from the brim up, narrowing as they reach the crown.
