Reversible and multicolour-friendly, Plus One has so many styling options. The unusual crown shaping and doubled fabric results in a fashionable high profile when worn full length. For a closer fit, you can turn up the bottom, revealing a contrasting cuffed brim.
This pattern includes instructions for three sizes, and includes an illustrated tutorial for working the crochet provisional cast on. To make Plus One, you will need to know how to knit in the round, slip stitches, and decrease.

About the yarn

Camp Color CC Fingering is a soft, smooth, springy, 2-ply yarn spun from Superwash Merino wool. The yarn is dyed to produce semi-solid colours without the need to alternate skeins. If substituting yarns for this project, look for a light fingering to fingering weight yarn with good memory that feels comfortable against your skin and gives you a fabric you like at the pattern’s gauge. You will need approximately 205 (245, 262) yds/188 (224, 240) m of each MC and 57 (63, 68) yds/53 (58, 63) m of CC.
