Little effort, big impact. This is a perfect pattern, to start brioche knitting!
The FLIPPIG hat pattern is interesting enough to hold your attention and gives you stretches of peaceful repetition too. Additionally you learn basics about two-color brioche knitting, how to knit increases and decreases and straight Brioche knitting.
Use two highly contrasting colors: one tonal/ solid and one variegated / gradient/ speckled)
Wear the FLIPPIG hat for impenetrable warmth and for a hip accessory. Wear it one way out or the other, cuffed or uncuffed and slouchy… The FLIPPIG hat is like four hats in one!
