Majorna beanie is worked in the round, in one piece. The brim consists of three layers. First you will work the middle layer (stockinette stitch, yarn A), then you will work the outer layer (stockinette stitch, yarn A & B held together). The folded brim is created by knitting the stitches together with the cast-on edge. The inner layer of the brim is worked in ribbing. The body of the hat is worked in brioche with yarn C & D held together. Decreases are worked using DPNs or Magic Loop.
