The TANNEN pattern might look rather more complex, but actually there are three pattern rounds to be repeated only! So it is in fact a three-row-wonder, which makes it perfect for a last minute knitted gift! If you ask me for two perfectly matching colors: camel and cherry! It looks so classic!

The pattern is working with a warm rose and a light gray as well, it is easily to remember and suitable for brioche newbies too!
The hat has a brim, is very stretchy, slouchy and well-fitting at the same time. It’s important to note that there is no 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.
