I am an engineer by training and I love interesting geometry so the Moebius brim on the hat is my favorite aspect. It’s just a little bit tricky without being overwhelming.
Beginning with a Moebius strip, Aventine is a charmingly simple hat that transforms into the most perfect accessory. Dress up the luscious Trinity Worsted with embellishments and your favourite colourway for an accessory that beautifully compliments every wardrobe year-round.
Alice’s Tip for Knitting Aventine
It’s such a simple project, that anyone can do it. The cast-on tutorial is very similar to Jenny’s Magic Cast-On, so with a bit of practice, you’ll have it down pat.
