What I really love about brioche knitting is working with two colors! If you are knitting brioche stitches in gray and rose it becomes something new: GROSE.

Do you remember the Beezee hat, which was released last year? A simple slightly slouchy beanie without a brim. The GROSE hat is made without a brim too, combining brioche and garter stitches in one round. The slightly slanting brioche part is responsible for its asymmetrical shape. You can wear it different ways, it´s also beautiful inside out.

Very few pattern rounds are to be knitted and the decreases for the crown are simplified as much as possible! GROSE is a perfect pattern to start two-color brioche knitting and a cozy knit gift for your best friend too. You can do it!
