A simple beginner friendly brioche pattern for a slouchy and cosy beanie with a folded up brim and a big fluffy pompom. Written for one adult size - the stretchy nature of the brioche stitch means it will comfortably fit most head sizes.

Knit from the bottom up with stretch cast on, single colour brioche, and decreases at the crown.
