Brioche Top Knot
Please select all options.
This is a PDF knitting pattern
This playful hat comes in a standard fitted size and a super loose and slouchy style. This design is a great beginner pattern for learning two-color brioche in the round and left and right decreases.
The decreases result in two rectangular tabs that form the top knot. Pick two colors of DK or worsted weight yarn and brioche, baby!
