Inspired by Frida Kahlo’s home “La Casa Azul” this squishy brioche hat showcases different striping by alternating warm and cool colours of various intensity. This makes the stripes pop more behind the vertical brioche grid, reminiscent of Frida’s house.

The hat is fully reversible and there are two striping-schemes
proposed in the comfortable Eco-Wool Cotton yarn
: An explosion of carefully curated colours for the multi-coloured version and a more subdued and subtle, less contrasty tri-coloured version.

Another interesting feature here is the crossed over brim, which starts out worked flat in rows and joined in an overlapping manner just before moving to the body of the hat, so as to produce a cheeky little dip towards the hairline when worn.

Each of the two sides of the hat are finished off with an i-cord loop at the top: Not only is this a quick, fun and stylish addition to the hat, but also a very practical feature to safely hang it next to one’s coat if not worn!

This hat is a perfect introduction to the brioche stitch pattern,
since the slightly complicated reversible decreases are also included in the form of a photo-tutorial at the end of the instructions, ready to be taken wherever you go!
