Isn´t it magic to knit a pattern and another one appears inside? MAGIC BRIOCHE is another version of my WheatAndChuff pattern with small adaptations, but it´s fully reversible too. It´s so exciting to make little unventions in brioche knitting. To be honest with you I prefer the pattern inside - therefore you have to use the light color as the contrasting color (CC) - if you go for the “cabled” pattern use the light colored yarn as main color (MC).

The MAGIC BRIOCHE hat has a brim, is very stretchy and well-fitting at the same time. Knit it as a gift for the ones you love or spoil yourself. Pattern is based on basic brioche stitches, increases and decreases. As you might know, I always try to avoid a 4-stitch-decrease, which may intimidate some of you. 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.
