Absalon Brioche Hat Knitting Pattern
This is a downloadable pattern. Pattern will be delivered electronically upon completed purchase.
Knit in the round, bottom up, Absalon is patterned with rows of tulips, and benefits from the use of contrasting yarns. You can certainly select yarns that are more subtle in their differences, as in the sample Sheri is wearing on the cover of this pattern. Or you can select yarns with much more starkness in their contrast as in the picture on the next page. Either way, this is a really fun knit.
