Pattern Notes

As the name implies, the inside out hat is worked backwards from the tradition method of crocheting in the round. This is because the reverse side of the extended crochet stitch has such a wonderful texture! For complete step by step instructions on which way you should be crocheting, I recommend you have a look at the provided video tutorial.

If you need to adjust the sizing slightly, I recommend altering the gauge and using a 5.5 or 6 mm crochet hook. This will increase the sizing of your hat just a tad.

This pattern recommends you begin your round with the magic ring. If you are unfamiliar with the magic ring, take a look at my tutorial here:

If the magic ring is your rival, don’t worry, you aren’t alone! Try the alternate magic ring. It will save you time and frustration!
