This is a great stash busting project!

It is perfect for beginners. It looks quite advanced, but only one colour is ever worked on a given row, making it really easy to knit. The different variations make it versatile.

A lot of variations are possible, all the « brick layers » can be worked in the same colour, each one can be a different colour or several colours can be repeated, whatever takes your fancy! The crown can be left as is, finished with an i-cord loop, a pompom or – my favourite – a tassel. All these variations will give the hat different looks.
