Inspired by Jonna’s love for pines, Kotte (a Swedish word for ’cone’) is a perfect, quick project for anyone trying brioche for the first time. The hat is knitted with large needles and combines a super bulky, woolly yarn with divine silk mohair. Optionally, you can finish the hat with a large pompom with yarn you have found from your stash.
