Halla (a Finnish word for ’frost’) hat is a quick knit – a perfect choice for the first brioche project. It is knitted with a large needle and four divine, hand dyed yarns. As such, it is also a stash buster: pick three fingering weight yarns and combine them with fluffy suri, brushed alpaca or even silk mohair held double. This one size hat looks as adorable on a four-year-old as on an adult.
