Brioche Topper: a simple and warm hat, knit from the brim to the top. Having Brioche stitch at the brim creates the coziest cover for your ears!

Colorwork is achieved by playing with one color of gradient yarn (though you can also use two colors!)… this hat is an example of something that looks tricksy but is easy!

The pattern includes a video tutorial to teach you how to work brioche in the round.

I also include notes on how to transform Brioche Topper into a “ponytail” hat… I wear my hair up alot of the time, so often times traditional hats don’t really “work” for me!
