I found that this beanie looked good both ways so i guess it's reversible! My boyfriend loved it and so do I (:
This fits a 20-23 inch head
Ok, so my abbreviations are
K1 = Knit one
K2 = Knit two
K2TOG = Knit two together
The amount of time it takes depends on your knitting skill. I'm not a very experienced knitter so it took me quite some time!
Pick out your choice of yarn and 10 US 16 inch circular needles. I just used a simple navy colored yarn
cast on about 75 stitches then place your marker at the beginning of the stitches to remember where the beginning and end of a row is. Join sides.
I did a K2 P1 pattern for about 8 or 9 rows, then just K for the following rows until the hat was 5.5 inches from the cast on edge.
I began to decrease by doing K2, K2TOG for about seven rows.
For four rows I did K1, K2TOG.
For the remaining stitches I did K2TOG for as many rows as needed, which shouldn't be many.
I ended up having an odd number of stitches at the end of my final row (three extra stitches)so i just K3TOG.
Cut extra yarn off the final stitch and knit into work.
