All I wanted was a hat to pull down and keep my ears warm, when it started to be freezing this February.

This pattern reminds you of my RISPEN pattern? Well, it´s just another version but with little trees and bushes!

For some time now I have been looking for a pattern for this wonderful speckled yarn, made by Walkcollection.
This pattern came coincidentally, when I was trying to find something different… but I am more than happy how it worked out!

The hat has a brim, is very stretchy, slightly slouchy and well-fitting at the same time. It´s definitely long enough to keep your ears warm, when a strong north wind is blowing in February.

The pattern is based on basic brioche stitches, increases and decreases. You should know that there is a br 4-stitch-decrease to be knit. 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.
