Painting Bricks Hat
Painting Bricks Hat by Westknits. This DK weight hat is quick and fun to knit with the slip stitch brick pattern. Choose one main color and accent it with as many contrast colors as you like. This hat is knit in the round from the brim toward the crown with a cozy folded brim. A squishy DK weight wool like West Wool Tandem will make the coziest colourful accessory.
