Saunter Saunter - Hat Band
Saunter Saunter - Folded
Saunter Saunter - Beret
Saunter Saunter - Cowl
Saunter Saunter - Both

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit in the round
  • Brioche - knit/purl stitches tog with yarn overs
  • k2tog/p2tog
  • slip stitches

Pattern Description:

Honeycomb Brioche worked in the round in two colors creates an interesting mix of texture and color on both sides of the fabric. Both the cowl and the beret are written to be fully reversible so they can be worn either way.

The beret is loose fitting and slouchy, and gives a different look depending on which side of the fabric is shown.

For the cowl, switching the orientation as you knit results in a cowl that is shows both sides of the fabric and is fully reversible.

To assist those who are not familiar with brioche there are stitch diagrams in the pattern as well as explanatory text.

This pattern is both fully written and charted.
