Avebury is a Brioche hat knit in the round. This hat looks great in either a solid color or two colors. The Syncopated Brioche stitch pattern used in this hat is completely reversible, making the hat reversible as well! The two color version is worked such that each round is worked with alternating colors - the other color yarn is not carried in the round making the colorwork a breeze.

Pattern is 4 pages & includes a brioche stitch guide with a more detailed explanation of brioche stitches than those listed in the abbreviations list.
