Daniel's Hat KAL

Daniel’s Hat is warm and squishy – and a great introduction to knitting brioche in the round. The pattern includes sizes baby to adult XL, which makes it a great pattern for making gifts. And most of the sizes can be made with one skein of yarn.

This KAL is the 2nd in our Brioche Series of knit alongs. The first is the Basic Brioche Headband. It’s a quick project to teach you the basic brioche stitches. It is not a prerequisite to this KAL, but if you have never knit brioche before, I recommend doing it before this one.

The Worsted Brioche Bandana Cowl is the 3rd KAL in our brioche series. In it, you will learn how to knit 2-color brioche flat and in the round.

In this KAL you will learn how to:

  • Knit brioche in the round
  • Cast on for a smooth, stretchy edge
  • Knit 2 common brioche decreases
  • Read brioche stitches to aid in avoiding mistakes
  • Use a lifeline so you never have to rip all your work out again 

Participants must know how to cast on, knit, and purl prior to starting this KAL. Knowing how to knit in the round will be helpful, but it’s not necessary for adventurous knitters.

  • Daniel’s Hat pattern (Click here for the free download)
  • Worsted weight yarn, 100-230 yards, depending on size
  • US 6 & US 8 needles, or the size you normally use for knitting worsted weight yarn and one that is a size or 2 smaller
    Note: The pattern recommends using 16” circular needles and double pointed needles. I found the 16” circular to be a bit long for easy knitting. Therefore, I recommend 32” or longer circular needles and the magic loop method of knitting in the round.
  • Stitch markers
  • Darning needle
