If you love the look of two-color brioche but are intimidated by brks and brps, this reversible hat design is for you! It applies the easier technique of “knit below” to obtain brioche fabric with very little effort. No previous experience with brioche knitting is needed.

The hat is worked top-down to allow size adjustment for a perfect fit. The swirling pattern on the crown is reminiscent of the hanging tentacles of a jellyfish floating on the sea.

The hat uses one skein each of MC and CC. To make both this hat and its companion piece Unbrioched Cowl, an additional skein of MC is needed.
