Inspired by one of my first patterns, Prim, this is a reversible slouchy hat, knit using two color brioche. Utilizing clever increases and decreases to form what looks like the classic Staghorn Cable. I like to think of it as the original Prim’s older, wiser, possibly hipper, older sister. The pattern is both written and charted.

Vintage Prim is available in both English & French! A huge thanks to Marie-Line André (MrsPurPle1) from for translating!
