Fishermans Rib On Straight Needles

I was so excited that I found the Sirdar Head Start yarn at a discount. I had my eye on this yarn for a while specially since there is a scrumptious pompom and the color is so cheerful and contrasts so well with the grey yarn. I had wanted to try a new knitting technique and the Fisherman's Rib or the Brioche Stitch was top on my list. Now since I wanted to try a complicated stitch I wanted to do it on straight needles. But it took a lot of trawling around the web to find a pattern for a hat on straight needles and that too using the Fisherman's Rib. Here is the pattern I used from the awesome people at yarnspirations.

I had a shaky start but once I understood the pattern and how it works it was relatively easy going. This is still a tricky pattern and I did cheat by just improvising specially at the top of the hat. But it does look like a chunky rib and I am happy with the results.
