Trident is a two-color brioche hat with fun lace patterns inspired by the ocean and Poseidon’s Trident. It is knit in the round from the bottom up, with the brioche lace pattern beginning right after casting on for a modern look. This was the third and final pattern designed exclusively for the Fuzzy Fix subscription boxes, in collaboration with the Fuzzy Goat yarn shop in Thomasville, GA!

This pattern is both written and charted for your convenience.

Skill level: Beginner Brioche friendly!! Basic two color brioche skills are not required, but are recommended. This is a great project if you’d like to try some brioche increases and decreases. Techniques used: knitting in the round, knit, purl, brioche knit (brk), brioche purl (brp), brioche increases and decreases.

If you have not yet tried knitting brioche, fear not!! This hat may look complicated, but the twists and turns are made by increasing and decreasing the brioche stitches and are so much fun once you learn! This pattern is written so that ANYONE can knit it, with links to videos teaching the techniques. I also highly recommend visiting Nancy Marchant’s website to learn more: www.briochestitch.com.
