This cushy Brioche Beanie pattern was created as a great first brioche project. The pattern will give you a chance to work brioche in the flat, and in the round. The brim is started with a provisional cast-on. It is completed with a Kitchener stitch. This creates a horizontal brioche brim. You then pick up stitches along the edge and start working brioche in the round. This creates a vertical brioche effect.
These lines create a beautiful project. Bonus, this hat is completely reversible and can be done in multiple textures! There is no shaping at the top, so you can feel free to stop the hat as soon as it is a size you love. Use 2 colors, or use 4 colors for a really unique hat! This hat comes with smaller or larger brim options. The sample shows the larger brim.
