Make the best of your leftovers! In my stash are plenty of beautiful leftovers in DK weight yarn. Many tiny balls in gray and red and a palette of warm tones from yellow to brown! Reminding me on all the projects I have knit recently.

The other day I started to sort all these leftovers by color and weight and ordered them from light to dark! Finally I took a project bag full of leftovers along for my vacation. So it was simply inevitable that I will be bringing a hat back home…

To simplify brioche knitting this beanie was knit in one-color-brioche stitch in the round, which was so much fun. That´s why I couldn´t resist to knit another one in shades of yellow and brown and a pinky version too.

The TINNEA beanie 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. Love is all you knit!

Pattern is based on basic brioche stitches, increases and decreases. You can do it, knitters!

This hat can be knit in two sizes S (M) or multiple sizes by changing needle size or gauge; Block the finished cap over a steep-sided bowl or other head-shaped form to smooth the crown.
