Hearts A Bustin
Little hearts spiral their way around the body of this hat – perfect for Valentine’s Day when worked in red and white. This textured hat works up quickly in a super bulky yarn, with just enough slouch to be comfy but not too heavy. Even though it looks like a stranded pattern, you only work with one color at a time.
The stitch is a modified version of the fluffy brioche stitch found Barbara G Walker’s A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns, (Schoolhouse Press, 1998).
This pattern uses brioche terms and abbreviations as established by Nancy Marchant at www.thebriochestitch.com and in her book, Knitting Brioche (North Light Books, 2009).
