You're the Scissors
You're the Scissors by Shanalines Designs | I designed this hat for a friend of mine, and I love the simple and wearable aesthetic. It is a classic unisex design has a graduated ribbing pattern that looks great on people of all ages. This reversible pattern is worked on the knit side for clean decreases. The stretch accommodates many head sizes, making this a great gift project. The adult size fits up to a 26” size head! Yes you read that right!
