Melanie Berg Backflip Hat PDF
In ice skating, the Backflip is a breath-taking maneuver that only the most skilled skaters can perform. This hat (and also the matching Backflip Mitts) from Melanie Berg is her take on this move. The Backflip Hat is knit in the round in a sport weight yarn with an interesting texture pattern worked over the main section.
