I made my dad a hat for his birthday. He is not into bright colors and energetic motifs. I could have knit him a very plain watch cap, but I settled on an idea to spice it up, for my own sanity (?). What might appear to the untrained eye, a very simple hat, is, in fact, two color brioche in the round. Wheeeeee!
Dad is not a cold-weather kind of person so gifts of warm clothes are always appreciated.
OMG, I love this hat so much!
I need to make one for myself. Doncha think?
I used the Brioche Hat pattern from Weekend Knitting and sadly the directions for the crown decreases are confusing. And this is NOT a reversible pattern, although you will be tempted to think it is until near the end. That, I can live with, but I want to find a pattern with clearer directions for the crown.
So what’s a girl to do? Nancy Marchant, the living expert, doesn’t appear to have a published pattern for a straight-forward two-color brioche watch cap. Anyone have a pattern they’ve used to recommend?
What do you have a craving to cast on?
