    This is a wool/acrylic blend, but you could have fooled me. I could do without the strand of flitter, but my sister loved it, which was the whole idea. The ball band recommends a 13 needle, but a 9 or 10 is really a better choice for a warm and stretchy hat, in my opinion. I worked the band in garter stitch and used purl breaks in the stockinette body to highlight the puffy sections of the yarn.

      Comments about Berroco Brio:

      I have knit multiple cowls with this yarn and it's become my go-to fiber when I want to knock something out fast.

      Love the multi fiber density and soft metallic thread to add that touch of glitz.

              Makes a perfect infinity scarf. Just the right length... Cast on ~104 sts, join in the round, then K4,P4 for 4 rows then P4,K4 for 4 rows. Repeat for a total of 20 rows. BO in pettern.

                      Use the Goshen pattern for a quick, warm hat. I used 4 strands doubled for the 'braids' so it looked thicker.
