The Brioche Waffle Beanie uses a half brioche stitch to give this unisex hat an interesting texture. The result is a lightweight, super squishy and stretchy beanie that can fit a wide range of head sizes. Knit from the bottom up (ribbing to crown), using a tubular cast-on, band of 1 x 1 ribbing and half brioche stitch, making this hat fully reversible.

The pattern is written for adult sizes Small (20 inches), Medium (22 inches) and Large (24 inches). Sample shown in adult/medium on 22 inch head (me) and 21 inch head (daughter). Stitches used include -- knit, purl, brioche purl (brp), slip 1 yarn over (sl1yo) and brioche 4 stitch decrease (br4stdec). It is suitable for adventurous beginner / intermediate level knitters. The most challenging part is the crown shaping :-)
