A super bulky Alpaca-merino blend and thick brioche rib guarantee that this will be the warmest hat around. Worked flat, it is easy enough for a beginner, and knits up in a flash, making it a great last-minute gift.

While we generally prefer circularly-knit hats, here flat knitting eliminates the need for ungainly, large DPNs (which you would use only briefly anyway).

The pattern contains detailed notes to help those unfamiliar with the brioche technique, but the main stitch pattern itself consists of only one row.
