This brioche hat is much more easier to knit than it looks at glance! It’s all about the brioche star stitch and there are so many ways to create different cable motifs. The best thing about it: there is no need for a cable needle! For this pattern you have to repeat altogether 4 pattern rows only, which is very effective, isn’t it?

Two different versions are given; a slouchy (which you can see above) and a non-slouchy version too! The pattern is transforming from body to crown and the instructions for the crown are as simple as can be, but no less surprising!

The hat can be knit in multiple sizes only by changing needle size and gauge; Block the finished cap over a steep-sided bowl or other head-shaped form to smooth the crown.
