Simple stripes of straight brioche knitting alternate with purled and slipped stitches. After knitting the crossovers, you can relax, continuing with straight brioche knitting again.
It was stunning, how the combination of simple pattern stripes came out. It looks quite sophisticated and complex, in reality the pattern stripes are easy enough for brioche beginners and young knitters. The crown is designed as easy as possible.
The ZarenaBrioche hat is stretchy and well-fitting at the same time.

So don´t be afraid of brioche knitting any longer. You don´t have to be. If it´s something you´ve never tried, it´s like anything else in knitting - it´s just a matter of learning how to do it and practicing. If you are new to brioche knitting, a hat is a good place to start. You can do it, knitters!
The ZarenaBrioche 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.
