The All Ways Hat is our go-everywhere staple that was designed to warm the ears of the entire family. Worked in a non-traditional construction with plenty of meditative stockinette and a clean, ready-to-wear style, you may find yourself, like us, knitting multiple! Follow our extended instructions in the pattern companion to incorporate colorplay and fully utilize the design’s complete reversibility.

This pattern is part of our BT by Brooklyn Tweed pattern line; a collection of skill-accessible knitting patterns written in a concise, visually appealing way. Each pattern offers a beginner-friendly entry point into the larger world of Brooklyn Tweed yarns and patterns. Projects you make from BT by Brooklyn Tweed will be straightforward to knit and fun to wear!


This double-layered hat is worked seamlessly from end to end in a single piece. Casting on a small number of stitches, the hat begins with a top-down crown (shaped with increases). Once your full hat circumference has been reached, you will knit circularly to the desired length for your size and style (Beanie or Watchcap), then work a second crown (shaped with decreases) that mirrors the first to achieve a completed hat that resembles an elongated egg. Fold the finished piece in upon itself at the halfway point, punching one crown into the second crown, to create a double-thick, reversible stockinette cap that’s both warm and stylish.
