Today I would like to share the pattern for this beautiful brioche stitch hat.  Brioche is a beautiful, fluffy stitch that makes a lofty fabric, perfect for cold weather.   My favorite part of brioche is the two-tone rib look when you use two strands of different colors.  If you choose to make this hat without the pom pom, it will actually be reversible and show the accent color as the main color on the reverse side.



The yarn I used for this hat is so extremely soft and warm.  I found this yarn at my local yarn store but have linked an online store that carries both colors I used (Sierra Nevada and Polar Frost) {here}.  The best deal on this yarn is at Amazon but since the exact colors I used are sold out, I have linked some of my favorites in the images below.

 

For the fur pom pom, I couldn’t find one as soft and in the color I wanted so I actually used the one from the keychain I have linked below!  I just slipped it off the chain and thread a piece of yarn through the end to attach it to my hat.

I hope that you enjoy this pattern!  I really love brioche and think it makes the perfect winter accessories so be on the lookout for more patterns in this beautiful technique!

Let me know if you have any questions, I am always here to help.

With Love, Kaitlin

  1. Hello, I am just nearing the end of knitting this pattern and noticed there is only one decrease round? Is that right? Threading the two strands through 92 stitches? Wouldn’t it leave a large hole? Thank you!

    1. Hi Chelsey! So it doesn’t need to leave a large hole. The brioche stitch really seals up nicely but if you do end up with a hole you can thread through the yarn across the hole, and then across again in the opposite direction to get a good cinch. Let me know if this makes sense or if you have any other questions!

    1. I used Juniper Moon Herriot. It is actually 4ply yarn and is considered about a light worsted or dk weight 🙂
