Monarch Egg Hat

This hat is fully reversible thanks to its construction.

All the hats have a folded hem brim, except the Infant size. I go over how to do this in the pattern and have a link to a video as well. You may choose to not work the brim as I have worked it, you can always sew it after the fact.

I chose 2 colors for the brim because of the yarn kit I was using. You can choose more or less as you’d like.
