Dover by Courtney Kelley is a reversible hat worked in the round from the top down using an invisible cast on. After the stitches are cast on, increases are worked to shape the crown. After working the body, decreases are worked to shape the brim and the hat is finished with a knit one, purl one ribbing. The hat is intentionally flipped inside out for wearing, but you may chose to wear it as knit if you prefer.
The crown and body are worked from charts.
