NOTES

  • This hat is worked in the round from the bottom up.
  • In brioche stitch, when counting stitches, each slipped stitch with its companion yarnover counts as one stitch. When counting rounds, one visible round counts as two rounds.
  • When changing colors at the beginning of rounds, bring new color under old color.
