On a clammy and foggy day in November a bright yellow beanie can light up your day. When you miss the sunlight outside the SOLENA hat will be a perfect accessoire.

First time I used the smooth wool from Hedgehog fibres, which has an indescribable softness and a wonderful stitch definition. I have chosen the colorways Pollen (MC) and Typewriter (CC), Rusty Nail (CC) together with Teacup (MC).

This fitted beanie was knit in an easy two-color brioche stitch pattern. A perfect brioche pattern for you to start two-color brioche stitch. It´s so easy to shape the crown of this hat, only by omitting the increases. Give it a try!

Pattern is written for two circumference small and medium to fit the child and average adult female. When applicable, directions for S/ M sizes are written in parentheses as follows: S (M ).
