The Brisa Hat - A Thick and Warm Winter Hat
If you want an extra warm winter hat that knits up quickly, this is the hat for you. The cable design and bulky yarn makes this a very squishy, thick hat that is perfect for the cold weather. It can be worn as a long slouchy hat or as a beanie with a brim. The optional border stitch is made with a crochet hook and creates a nice tension that pulls the edge slightly away from the face creating a soft feminine look.
