This squishy, stretchy, two-color brioche stitch beanie has gentle, swirling decreases at the top that are identical inside and out, making it completely reversible.
Make it in your favorite team colors, or show off a yarn with long color transitions. (It's a natural for Noro!) Made in two harmonious solid colors, it's also a sophisticated, guy-friendly winter staple.
The pattern has extensive instructions, tips and step-by-step photo directions for working two-color brioche in the round -- working both colors at the same time, using **both hands!** This two-fisted technique is a fun challenge for intermediate and advanced knitters, and downright hypnotic once you get the hang of it.
**Intermediate/advanced:** Requires at least passing familiarity with knitting both Continental and English styles.
