The BRIOCHERUB pattern is about a star stitch, which is well-known, translated into brioche knitting! It was so much fun, that it was difficult to stop knitting.

The transition from brim to pattern is perfect to make you familiar to the pattern, which is a combination of well-known brioche stitches.
The hat has a brim, is very stretchy, slightly slouchy and well-fitting at the same time. It’s important to note that there is no 4-stitch-decrease to be knit. You can do it, knitters!

The 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.
