Paws aplenty in this simple beanie.
This beanie is very special to me as when my lovely dad passed away (June 9th 2021) part of my grieving was to lose myself in my needles and I designed this hat with lots of tears and love for him.
My dad was lifelong dog person. The name Brison is a combination of dads name, Brian and my rescue Staffie, Jackson, who dad had a very special bond with.
All pattern sales will ALWAYS be fully donated to The Dogs Trust in my dad’s name.
Knit in the round from the bottom up, this beanie features a ribbed double brim and some basic stranded colourwork.
This pattern is both written and partially charted. There are handy progress check boxes, so you can keep a visual track of where you are.
