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.
4st/5 rows= 1 inch in stockinette stitch

Despite telling my mom years ago that I would never become a knitter, I took up a pair of needles in 2009 and haven’t put them down since! Knitting is an outlet for my creative energy and my desire to always be making things with my hands. My goal as a designer is to create unique knitting patterns; inspired by the beautiful, wild and rugged landscape of the Pacific Northwest--a place I loves to explore and am privileged to call home. I strives to write patterns that are easy to follow and simply enjoyable both to knit and to wear.
Keeping busy by day as a wife, mother of three and homemaker, I love to spend my evenings curled up on the couch with a cup of coffee, knitting, planning and sketching my never-ending design ideas. :)
If you have an questions about any of my patterns, would like to become a test knitter or to set up a trunk show, please feel free to contact me! I’d love to help!
