Vintage Prim

6.00

Inspired by one of my first patterns, Prim, this is a reversible slouchy hat, knit using two color brioche. Utilizing clever increases and decreases to form what looks like the classic Staghorn Cable. I like to think of it as the original Prim’s older, wiser, possibly hipper, older sister.

The pattern is both written and charted.

*In purchasing this product you will receive a .pdf pattern for the pictured item so that you can knit them up yourself, not the actual finished item.
