“Kapriolen” is the German word for cutting capers! And I was about to cut capers, when I found out how to translate cable motifs into brioche knitting without using a cable needle! The CABRIOLA pattern is combining two cable motifs with two-color brioche stitches in a very effective way.

You only have to choose two matching colors of DK weight yarn from your stash and start a new adventure about brioche knitting! The instructions for the crown are as simple as can be, but no less surprising!

The hat has a brim, is very stretchy, slightly slouchy and well-fitting at the same time. It’s important to note that there is no 4-stitch-decrease to be knit. 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.
