Yarn A & B (the body of the hat) may be replaced with one strand of yarn in DK weight (approx. 250m/100g).
Yarn D (brim) should be soft and elastic, with good recovery. I highly recommend choosing plied yarn in 100% wool.
3 mm (US2.5) circ. needles 40 cm/16” for ribbing.
4 mm (US6) circ. needles (40 cm/16”) and a set of DPNs (or Magic Loop) for brioche.
Stitch marker, tapestry needle, pompom maker (Ø 45 mm), scissors, steamer and tongs for the pompom.
The hat is worked top down, in the round. The body of the hat is worked in brioche pattern with two strands held together (yarn A & B). The brim is worked in 1x1 rib, fold double and sewn in place. Outside of the brim is worked with two strands held together (yarn C & D), inside of the brim is worked with one strand only (yarn D). The pompom is made using yarn D.
