My Daily Brioche is a perfect pattern for you to start brioche knitting. It´s another one-round-wonder with only one (one!) pattern round every 8 rounds ( considering that straight brioche knitting isn´t a pattern) !

The hat has a slanting allover pattern, no brim, is very stretchy and well-fitting at the same time.

As you might know, I love it to combine rose with grey or brown. Trying to find the perfect marriage of warm grey and greyish pink! I couldn´t resist “ Puderdöschen” and “Gloire de Dijon” (both colors by Wollmeise) which remind me of nude makeup shades.

I tried to keep the pattern simple, based on basic brioche stitches, increases and decreases. Although it looks like cabled stitches, there is no need for a cable needle. You can do it, knitters!
The hat can be knit in multiple sizes only by changing needle size and gauge; Block the finished hat over a steep-sided bowl or other head-shaped form to smooth the crown.
