The Double Take Beanie is a fitted hat with a squishy feel that begs you to take a second look. This is a fisherman’s rib pattern, not brioche. Two colors are used to create an eye-popping contrast as well as a nice, thick fabric. This beanie can be knit without a brim or with a cuffed brim that definitely has a wow factor--the brim shows off the color peeking out between ribs in the main body of the beanie. It’s such a fun hat, and the color combinations that can be created with this pattern are seemingly endless!
