I have been artistic all my life, but no medium has obsessed me more than knitting. I live with my needles in hand! After leaving a career in social work, I decided to make fiber art central in my life. I got started in the fiber craft industry managing Mary Maxim Boutique in Toronto and as a Designer Assistant for Americo Original. In May 2012, I moved to Guelph, Ontario to further pursue an artistic life. As a newer indie designer, I am building my brand, Ash Kearns Handknitting and publishing regularly. I currently display my designs and teach regularly in Guelph, Ontario at All Strung Out Fine Yarns.
This hat's name speaks for itself; It is two identical hats in one! Have fun choosing a pair of matching or high contrast colors for your Replica Reversible Hat. A luxurious kid mohair and silk blend makes a warm, yet sculptural topper. Starting at the brim with a provisional cast-on, the first hat is worked in the round to the top of the crown. The second hat is repeated from the cast-on, creating a strange pill-like shape. Pop one inside the other and, Voila! A cosy double-thick hat that is easy to style! Experimentation is required! Wear with the brim down for a cosy cloche, with splash of contrast peaking out; Or pull up one edge; Or all the way around to show off your colours. You will enjoy playing with your Replica hat almost as much as knitting it!
