There’s someone in every knitter’s life who likes their clothes plain and simple, but is pretty fussy about what exactly that means. We’re fairly confident that they'll like Opari, a neat brioche rib beanie. Keep things simple with tonal neutrals or add a bright color contrast subdued with a neutral main. The contrast color shown is a barber-pole yarn with one ply that matches the main color and one darker one. This is an interesting subtle way to tone down contrasting colors.
