free knitting pattern: Happy K

My sister's birthday wish this year was a blue slouchy hat with a light yarn and pattern. She has beautiful light red hair and the color she picked makes her hair shine even more. Since it's her birthday and I made the calculations anyway, I'll give you this pattern as a gift, too. It's adult size and quite wide to sit loosely on the head. It's not too long, so you can fold the brim and wear it as a cap, too. I'm tempted to make one for me actually! The wool this hat is made from is Lamana Como, a new yarn. It's unbelievably soft and light. The weight is spectacular for the length (25g for 120m), that's why you should double the amount of yarn stated below, if you substitute it for another one. The hat in the Como yarn is 50g. You can take the inscriptions here or

brioche swatching

After all the embroidery posts lately, I'm doing some knitting again! What started as a hat version of the trigonometric loop developped into a completely new project (surprise - surprise!). I was looking for a less boring way to make the ribbing besides a simple 1x2rib - the cowl version starts with the pattern right away, but I like some sort of brim for hats. So my mind somehow came across brioche stitches. The trigonometric pattern is very textured and a textured brim could have looked good. Halfway through the brim I wondered what happens when I insert 2 rounds of stockinette. And then I somehow created a new pattern. briochehat1 The intermitted half brioche stitch. I call it that way because I have not found a picture of a similiar pattern yet, but I'm pretty sure someone has already thought of it :D After some......
