This hat is SQUISHY! Mmmmmmmmm.
Between the brioche rib and the Andy's Merino yarn it is just the thing to comfort a daughter who is not feeling her best.
Pattern: Bounce by John Brinegar
Yarn: Farmhouse Yarns Andy's Merino purchased at Purl Soho
Needles: US 10 & 10.5
Mods: I worked the brioche rib all the way through the crown decreases. The pattern calls for sockinette in the crown area. The downside of working the decreases in the rib is that there are four very pronounced points on the top of the hat. (Despite a nasty cold, the model did a bit of work creatively smooshing the hat to get the photos to look their best.) I'm hoping blocking will help make the points a little less prominent, otherwise I'll have to rip and rework the crown.
Crispianna started a Through The Loops group on Ravelry. The plan is to have it as a place to show off your finished Through The Loops projects, have discussions of patterns, get questions answered, find updates on new patterns in the works, join knit alongs, etc. If you are interested in joining you will find it here. Thanks!
