This pattern started as an experiment with shaping a hat using short rows. The result was far more interesting than I expected.

Favorite This Pattern on Ravelry!

Sidewinder is knit flat using short rows to create a unique reversible hat where garter stitch mimics ribbing.

The optional addition of colorwork stripes makes this hat stand apart from the crowd.

And since it’s all knit stitches, it can be made in just a few hours. A perfect last minute gift.
