MJ Brioche Hat Pattern (PDF)

Designed by Matthew Hesson-McInnis for any of the MJ Fingering Weight Yarns, this pattern pairs well with the MJ Tweed Scarf. Together, both projects use one skein each in two coordinating colors. The two pictures below demonstrate that the hat is fully reversible, with one color dominating each side.

Although the vertical lines of color might suggest stranded colorwork and the need to carry both colors of yarn along all rows, those knitters who are familiar with two-color brioche stitch will know that the slipped stitches mean that only a single color is used per row, making this technique more accessible to newer knitters.

There are several tricks to working brioche stitch efficiently, and there are several techniques (like getting a decent cast-on edge on and working decreases in brioche stitch) that may take some trial-and-error to master. As soon as time permits, the pattern author will either take still photographs or make short videos to illustrate these tricks of brioche. Check back soon.
