When you ask me why I love brioche knitting, this is the answer! It is so squishy, always surprising and never becomes boring!

The WALANDA hat is showing little hearts all around and a wonderful crown solution. The transition from brim to pattern is perfect to make you familiar to the pattern, which is a combination of well-known brioche stitches.

The hat has a brim, is very stretchy, slightly 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.
