Tip Top

I really should be telling you about all the other stuff (slippers, that little experiment in gauge, a book or two) that’s making progress in the background.  But I’m not going to do that.  I’ve been taken over by this purple hat and its reversible nature.  It seemed dreadfully important that I come up with crown decreases that were every bit as reversible as the rest of the hat.  I’m sure it’s immodest to say, but I think I nailed it.

Side A:
