Never say never! If you would have asked me for my favorite color a year ago, I never would have answered brown. But meanwhile I do appreciate all shades of brown and started to combine it with a light rose or blue.

So do not hesitate to go for a warm brown background color!
When you are choosing colors, go for a light color of speckled or variegated yarn as main color (MC) and a semisolid or solid dark color as contrasting color (CC).

The BRIOCHEMISTRY hat has a brim, is very stretchy and well-fitting at the same time. Two versions are given: a fitted and a slouchy version. Wear the BRIOCHEMISTRY hat for impenetrable warmth and for a hip accessory.

All you have to know or to learn is a right leaning decrease and how to increase two brioche stitches. You can do it, knitters!
The hat can be knit in multiple sizes only by changing needle size and gauge; Block the finished cap over a steep-sided bowl or other head-shaped form to smooth the crown.
