Worked in the round, this fun, two-colour brioche slouchy hat can also be made using a solid colour yarn. It will give a textured look, without the drama of colour play. The original design was worked with a solid main colour for band and background, with a hand-dye or multi-colour yarn in the brioche stitch. You could also switch it up, and use the multi-colour for the main yarn. The look is that of a small slouchy tam, that makes me think of jazz bars and beatniks -- hence the name. So, move to your own beat, and express your inner self with your unique take on this very wearable hat!
