Autumn Chase is the perfect fall hat! Stretchy and comfortable, it is designed to fit for seasons to come! This hat looks great knit it up in bright colors, deep jewel tones, or subtle neutrals… you’ll want to make one for the whole family!

Autumn Chase was a festival that I attended as a child and my inspiration for this hat. Each year, hundreds of hot air balloons were released into the clear blue sky, their vibrant hues inspiring awe in young and old alike. It signaled to me the beginning of my favorite season. This hat will keep your head cozy on crisp autumn days and into the bitter chill of winter.

The stitch pattern mimics brioche, but does not actually use the brioche stitch!
