DETAILED DESCRIPTION

FIG. 1 illustrates a skullcap 100 or knit cap which is substantially dome shaped and includes a peripheral band 105 which extends along the peripheral edge 113 of the skullcap 100. Sports fans which wear the skullcap 100 to sporting events desire to have the color on the exterior surface of the skullcap 100 match the colors of the team which they are cheering for. However, the team more than likely will have at least two colors or more, one color may be for home games or for first-team and the other color for away games or a second or different team. Previously, it has been necessary to have two separate skullcaps in order to meet the need of having a skullcap the color for home games and a second skullcap for away games. FIG. 1 illustrates a skullcap 100 which provides a solution to the above problem. The interior surface 109 of the skullcap 100 is a first color which may be for home games or for first-team, and the exterior surface 103 of the skullcap 100 may be a second color which may be for away games or different team. In addition to the first color corresponding to the home games and the second color corresponding to the away games or different team, the first color can correspond to the first team and the second color can correspond to a second team. In this way, it is possible to use the same clothing for two favorite but different teams. The skullcap 100 is flexible and reversible so that the interior surface 109 which is the first color can be turned into the exterior surface 103 by reversing the skullcap 100. Thus, the exterior surface now is the first color and the interior surface 109 is now the second color for a different team. The peripheral band 105 may be the first color, or the peripheral band 105 may be the second color. Alternatively, the peripheral band 105 may be a third color. The peripheral band 105 may include indicia 107. The indicia 107 may be a logo which corresponds to the team. For example, the first color may be blue and the second color may be white, and the logo may be ‘Cowboys’ of the Dallas Cowboys. Furthermore, the indicia 107 may be a catchphrase which relate to the color and consequently the team such as ‘How Bout Them Cowboys’.

The interior surface 109 may be a first color which corresponds to the home team color and the exterior surface 103 is the second color which corresponds to the away team color or different team color.

The logo ‘T’ could be on the interior surface of the peripheral band 105 and the catchphrase “Homerun’ could be on the exterior surface of the peripheral band 105 simply by reversing or turning the skullcap 100 inside out.
