I’d like to start this post off by protesting my innocence. The bear is not a kidnapping victim or hostage.
I know, I know. He looks like he has a sack over his head. He looks like he’s being kept in sensory isolation.
No such thing. Please believe me. I just didn’t have a proper hat model available. And I didn’t relish the notion of taking lots of hat-selfies.

Suitable for those hard-to-knit-for males on my gift list.
Two different versions of the Brier Toque:
A very light-weight hat, perfect for a runner who prefers something he or she can pull down over the ears.
For the stylish ladies in my family. Including the littlest ones. The orange one is toddler sized.

I knew I had to knit at least one thing from this magazine. I was enchanted by the creative construction of this hat. It really is hats within hats, like Russian nesting dolls. Or at least parts of hats.
Mr. Orson is the largest stuffed animal in our house. The only other possible hat models were these guys. Not only do they look fearsome, they’re also a tad too large.
