The question is: what came first, the pattern or the yarn? In this case I was so excited about these subtle hand-dyed colors and started to dream about a new botanical-inspired pattern! I was thinking about a leaf tendril or a climbing plant. It´s so exciting to make little unventions in brioche knitting.
As soon as you start increasing or decreasing, stitches become alive and pattern lines are growing all over the hat!

The MIRANKA hat has a brim, is very stretchy and well-fitting at the same time. Knit it as a gift for the ones you love or spoil yourself. Love is all you knit!

The pattern is based on basic brioche stitches, increases and decreases. It doesn´t include a 4-stitch-decrease, which may intimidate some of you. You can do it, knitters!
