Stay warm while cheering on your favorite team with this textured stocking cap!

Fingering yarn is held double throughout to create a cushy fabric. Reverse stockinette stripes alternate with brioche stripes - but don’t let the word “brioche” scare you! If you can yarn over, slip stitches, knit 2 stitches together, and purl 2 stitches together, then you have all the skills needed to be successful with this brioche stitch. It is spelled out, step-by-step, so even a brioche-beginner will feel confident working this stitch for the first time.

Available Sizes: 14.25” (16.25”, 18.25”, 20”) circumference x 8” (8.5”, 10”, 11.5”) tall - choose the size that is 2-4 inches smaller than actual head circumference. The model has a 22” head and is wearing the 18.75” size.

• US Size 4 / 3.5mm circular needle
