"Artemis" reversible slouch hat

"Artemis" reversible slouch hat.

Artemis Collage (2)
Artemis /ˈɑrtɨmɨs/ was one of the most widely venerated of the Ancient Greek deities. Her Roman equivalent is Diana. Some scholars believe that the name, and indeed the goddess herself, was originally pre-Greek. Homer refers to her as Artemis Agrotera, Potnia Theron: "Artemis of the wildland, Mistress of Animals". The Arcadians believed she was the daughter of Demeter.

You may honor the divine in you with this beautiful artsy hat. It may be shaped into a regular hat, a slouch or a Tam. It all depends on how you block it. A completely reversible hat with a lot of versatility, for many shapes and head sizes. This pattern inspired and adapted to be knit in the round for a hat, from “Crowns” by Barbara G. Walker, 4th Treasury of Knitting Patterns.

I hope that you will discover your favorite style, then make one for you and one for a friend.
