Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit and purl
  • basic lace stitches
  • knit lace with lace stitches on both RS and WS

Pattern Description:

Brier is a chunky, casual beanie perfect for a relaxing weekend. Knit in a bulky, soft cotton, Brier works up quickly with a touch of unusual, textured lace for interest. Because of the lace pattern, this beanie is knitted flat (back and forth) in the beginning and then joined together and finished in the round after the lace panel is knit.

There are two sizes included; the larger size (21" ribbing circumference) is more slouchy and can be worn a little loose, almost like a beret. The smaller size (19" ribbing circumference) is more like a normal beanie, with just a little slouch in the back.

Billow, the yarn used for this pattern, is a thick-thin type yarn so the gauge might be different than your typical bulky yarn. Be sure to knit a gauge swatch to make sure your gauge is correct, especially if substituting a different yarn.

Pattern includes helpful photos and written and charted instructions including notes for all the stitches involved.
