Last time it was great fun to combine brioche with garter stitches for my Berrit hat pattern! That’s why I was trying to add some leaves this time and it was definitely worth trying ! There aren’t many green things in my wardrobe, but this kind of green, called Joshua Tree by Madelinetosh, is matching even to light blue! I am more than happy how it worked out!

The pattern is working with a warm rose and a speckled beige as well, it is easily to remember and suitable for brioche newbies too!
The hat has a brim, is very stretchy, slouchy and well-fitting at the same time. It’s important to note that there is no 4-stitch-decrease to be knit. You can do it, knitters!

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.
