My favorite colors for the upcoming hat season are: a warm camel beige (which is matching my oversize camel coat) and a bright orange, which are playing perfectly together! Camel in combination with orange can cheer up every dull November morning.

For a long time I have been looking for a pattern with travelling leaves, but I always gave up too early. Now this pattern came coincidentally, when I was trying to find something different… a good thing is worth waiting for!

The CAMELLA hat has a brim, is very stretchy and well-fitting at the same time. Knit it as a gift for the ones you love or spoil yourself. November is the perfect month to start knitting gifts!
Pattern is based on basic brioche stitches, increases and decreases. You should know that there is no br 4-stitch-decrease. 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.
