Thick squishy fabric, an elegant single cable, and graceful decreases come together in this fully reversible two-color brioche stitch hat. Much simpler than it looks, this is a perfect introduction to brioche knitting. Choose yarns with a contrast in value (lightness/darkness) as well as in color for the best effect. The stitch is very stretchy, so if in doubt about which size to choose, pick the smaller one.
