Gather a colorful array of DK and worsted weight yarns to knit this two-color brioche hat in the round. Syncopated brioche creates the scrumptious texture with increases and decreases forming cozy earflaps. Change contrast colors every two rows while one main color remains constant throughout the entire hat.

Finished Measurements: 22” / 56cm circumference, 14” / 36cm from bottom of earflap to top of hat. Hat shown on a 22.5” / 57cm head. For a small size, I recommend going down 1 or 2 needle sizes.
