This unisex honeycomb patterned hat, knit in two-color brioche, reminds me of the intricate carved wooden screens in traditional Middle Eastern art. It has a slouchy fit with a series of eye catching decreases at the crown. Mix it up and flip it inside out for a totally different look of lines and dashes.

It is recommended that you try simple 2 color brioche stitch in the round before starting this project.
