Free Pattern! This Brioche Slouchy Hat is warm, squishy, and airy, knit in 3 colors. This tutorial will teach you to work my Shortcut Brioche stitch in the round. If you can work in the round and work “knit 1, purl 1” ribbing, you can knit this hat! There are no decreases at the crown, or anywhere in the pattern, it’s just ribbing and Shortcut Brioche Stitch. I added a large pom pom at the back.
