Pattern Description:

Mrs. Jekyll & Little Hyde is a reversible hat in light fingering weight wool that will still keep you warm, because of its two layers. The beret style hat can be worn either on it's feminine lace side with the lining peeping discreetly through, or on the sporty side with narrow stripes on bolder contrast colour and tiny little eyelets near the brim.

Both sides share the same ribbing, which is worked at the start in only one layer to reduce any bulk near the face. The brim is attached seamlessly to both the lace and the stripe hat.
(A photo tutorial explains this innovative and new construction that integrates both sides of the hat to the ribbing).

Tip: It is best to choose a contrast colour that is different than one's haircolour, so that it will pop through the lace and not look like it's just the hair underneath the lace...

If you'd like to substitute the yarn, please bear in mind that the yarn used here is a "light fingering" yarn and should better be substituted with a lace yarn that has similar yardage. Usual fingering or sock-yarn tend to be heavier and might result in a bigger sized hat.
