This pattern is so addictive! It’s a perfect way to get a little taste of brioche knitting without learning all kind of different brioche stitches. It’s a fast and fun knit and the finished hat is simply a pleasure.

The CRAZY LITTLE THING has no brim, is very stretchy and well-fitting at the same time. Knit it as a gift for the ones you love or spoil yourself.

Pattern is based on basic brioche stitches, increases and decreases. You should know that there is no br 4-stitch-decrease or a br4-stitch -increase to be knit. You can do it, knitters!

The hat can be knit in multiple sizes only by changing needle size and gauge; Block the finished cap over a steep-sided bowl or other head-shaped form to smooth the crown.
