Bits & Bobs in Brioche
Gather a colorful array of DK weight leftovers and knit this stripey brioche stitch hat. Work 2 rounds in 1x1 rib and then syncopate the knits and purls to create a reversible moss stitch fabric. The simple construction begins with an I-cord cast. This hat is a slouchy style and you can fold the brim for a cozy double layer.
