This darling little devil hat is worked flat in two-color brioche stitch. Several decreases add shape and decorative detail to the linear ribbing of the fabric. Choose a pop of color from your stash for the garter stitch strip. Two seams form the final hat shape with two playful pointy corners on top. Roate the hat around your head and fold the flap for different styles. This hat is perfect for a brioche beginner’s first two-color brioche project.
