The Cabriolet (French for “convertible”) is a stylish starter project for trying out brioche. Worked in the round with chunky yarns, this two color project is a fast and versatile knit that can be a headband or a hat—your choice!

Pattern includes special instructions for extra stretchy cast on and bind off that not only works particularly well for the brioche rib headband, they also mirror each other.
