Sunday Hats - Bratach

Today's featured Sunday Hats pattern is Bratach, designed by Alasdair Post-Quinn.

Double knitting hat pattern from Etsy and Extreme Double Knitting.
Bratach by Cooperative Press
Isn't it beautiful?  I love the way the edge of the brim is wavy.  It's also double knit which makes it double sided with the opposite color way on the inside.  It's like having two hats in one!  What's not to like about that?

The pattern comes from the book, Extreme Double Knitting.  If you aren't sure you like double knitting, or for what ever reason don't want to invest the $16.95 for the book, the single pattern can be purchased from Cooperative Press on Etsy.

Bratach is knit with worsted weight yarn at a gauge of six stitches to the inch.  And that means, it's not only a beautiful hat, but the knitting should go fairly quickly and it ought to be an extremely warm hat.  Go check it out and get busy knitting.  You know this hat would make an excellent Christmas gift and Christmas is only nine months away. And that means, you've got time to knit one for everyone on your list.  No excuses!
