Double Dutch

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 any weight from sock yarn to bulky, in your favorite team colors or 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.
