As the title suggest, the hat is worked sideways in rows, back and forth, then slip stitched together at the back. The height of the hat will be determined by the length of the foundation chain and the hat circumference will be given by the number of rows.

This easy hat is the companion piece to the Side2Side Cowl. Like the cowl, the hat is also worked flat and joined in the back by slip stitching the ends together. The top is gathered closed with a running stitch before all the ends are worked in. The designers use of the Yarn Over Slip Stitch really makes the ridges of the hat stand out. She also includes a detailed photo tutorial for the stitch.

I really like the look of this Side2Side Hat, it does look knitted. After reading the written pattern, I think it will come out great and can be fitted for the person luck enough to receive the hat. There is a print tab on the page down the lower part of the page. I think you could even make this into a ponytail hat with the way it closes at the top. There are many sizes to chose from, so there is no reason why anyone should have a cold head this winter. Now to figure out what color to use for the first one? Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.
