This brioche hat is easier to knit than it looks at first glance! It’s all about the Brioche Star Stitch and there are so many ways to create different cable motifs. The best thing about it: there is no need for a cable needle! Above all there are no brioche purl stitches to be knit.

The pattern is transforming from brim to crown and the instructions for the crown are as simple as can be, but no less surprising!

The hat can be knit in multiple sizes only by changing needle size and gauge; Block the finished cap over a steep-sided bowl or other head-shaped form to smooth the crown.
