As you can see from the photos above, the design is incredibly clever. My son Xavier (who is the willing model below) suggested choosing wildly contrasting colors next time which I think is a great idea.
I especially like the way the camel and cabernet highlight one another -- even though the solid camel side is plain, it's such a classic color. And the stripes on the verso is just as classy.
This beanie is incredibly warm, too, which is a nice plus as I plan to gift this to one of the men in my life. I'll be knitting more of these and will decide who gets which color combination once I lay them all out. I welcome color suggestions from all you so please share your ideas.
