Brioche Baby Hat

I forgot how long it takes to knit
in Brioche (two passes for one row)
but I am very pleased with the results.
Two hats in one!
I knit this on #3 needles over 61 stitches
to end up with a newborn sized hat.
It is super stretchy but in a soft way.
I think I will try it in the dark/light
combination next!

(Oh, and I took my watercolor paintings to be critiqued
by my teacher and I have homework!
Also a new painting in the works.
I love taking my art class!)

  1. I need someone to critique my watercolor. It is awful. I don't remember it being so hard when I was in college. Oh, well. Who doesn't need another challenge?
    Nice hat btw. I have never done brioche. It looks interesting.

  5. I cannot master Brioche. I've taken classes twice, and still mess up when I get back to the beginning of the round. Thus, I admire your hats greatly!

  6. Brioche seems difficult for so many. I have never tried. I love your hat finish. This is my favorite so far. I;ve done some double knitting, and enjoyed that.
