This classic cap is worked in plush brioche stitch and incorporates thoughtful shaping details. With both beanie and watchcap variations offered in a size range from newborn to adult, Nido might just become your go-to style for the whole family.
The hat is worked from the bottom up, starting with a 1x1 ribbed brim on smaller needles. The brim is worked to a shorter length for the Beanie and a longer length for the Watchcap. A decrease transition round is worked between 1x1 ribbed brim and brioche body to reconcile the difference in gauges between these two fabrics.
The hat’s 5-point crown shaping incorporates double decreases to keep the brioche pattern unbroken throughout. A compound shaping curve improves fit on the head and provides a slightly ‘peaked’ hat shape when worn high on the head.
