Gather a colorful selection of DK weight yarns for this two-color brioche hat. Begin at the bottom with brioche ribbing in the round. When you’re ready for something new the ribbed columns syncopate so the knits are purled and the purls are knit. Swap colors freely for a super striped effect and don’t forget to top it off with a pom pom!
