It seems like we’re seeing brioche patterns pop up everywhere these days! Join in the fun and learn to knit a visually dramatic, unique hat. In this class, you will learn how to knit basic two-color brioche rib in addition to learning how to brioche with increases and decreases to create the more interesting design within the pattern of this hat. To successfully knit this hat, you must be very comfortable knitting, purling, be able to read your knitting, and be ready for an adventure!
