The bramble stitch pattern gives this hat a wonderful texture - in dark purple it looks like a ripe blackberry. Choose between a basic beanie or stylish slouch. The hat is knit inside out, and you may even decide to wear it that way on some days – the reverse side is an interesting lacey trellis pattern.

4” = 22 sts and 24 rounds in Bramble Stitch on larger needles (row gauge is not critical for this project)
Note: yarn shown usually knits at 16-18 sts to 4” in Stocking Stitch.
