Pattern Details

"Red, the world about to dawn, Black, the night that ends at last." (from "Les Miserables", the musical) Inspired by the Liberty Caps of the French Revolution, this striking toque would look amazing with many colour combinations. It can be worn inside-out or outside-in to make black or red (or your two colour choices) the more predominant colour. This is the perfect way to start knitting brioche! You never know--it just might start you on a knitting revolution! SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate. You do not have to know how to knit brioche, as it is explained in the pattern. FORMAT: Adobe PDF File SIZES: Five sizes, ranging from Infant (15" head) to Adult Large (up to 26" head) STYLE VARIATIONS: Inverse-Colour Brim, Matching-Colour Brim, and Brimless TUTORIALS: A full glossary is included, as well as a photo tutorial for 2-Colour Long-Tail Cast ON. The brioche stitches also have definitions and photos showing what they look like. SKILLS YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE THIS PATTERN: Knit, purl, knit cast-on, make a gauge swatch in Stockinette Stitch.
