Sophie Lowe Beanie
A simple hat that is quick and fun to knit, the Sophie Lowe Beanie is a great beginner brioche project. The pattern provides clear instructions for all brioche techniques used, and the brioche decreases used in the crown shaping add a subtle yet interesting design element. Adding to the luxuriousness is the mohair held double with the fingering weight yarn—talk about some serious fluff-factor!
The pattern is available in three sizes, though the sizing is a bit flexible due to the stretchiness of brioche knitting. This means that you can tailor the hat to your preferences. If you like a tighter fitting hat, just knit down a size, and the hat will stretch to fit your head. If you like a more natural fit, then knit your normal size.
