Do you often get disappointed when you ask a guy in your life what hat you should knit him? You hope for an interesting and inspiring knit. He answers something like: “Just a simple rib hat please, nothing fancy.”
If that’s the case, Bricolage may be the hat that makes you both happy. It’s a sort of rib hat (his wish) but not just a simple one (your wish). The stitch pattern is interesting but not very difficult. What keeps you going is how the stitch pattern changes every 8 rounds. In fact, knitting this hat is a bit like building bricks.
