Free Pattern!! Quick Simple Knit Brioche Hat

To be honest, I really don’t like to give Presents that I didn’t make by myself. When I make handmade presents that I have a connection too, I feel much less like participating in the consume hustle. For this I want to share a quick knit hat that I designed for my love and is done in one evening. I wrote the pattern as quick as it is knitted. I apologize for any mistakes, the pattern is not proof-written šŸ™‚


  • Circular or double point Needle 7mm and 8mm
  • 1 skein of Lanartus Alpaca Merino (100m/ 100g)
  • Pointless thick sewing needle

Cast on 56 stitches with 7mm Needles

Brioche Rows:

Setup Row: yo, slip stitch purlwise, k1

1. Brioche Row: p2tog (yo & slip stitch), yo, slip stitch knitwise

2. Brioche Row: yo, slip stitch purlwise, k2tog (yo & slip stitch)

Repeat 1&2 Brioche Row 3 more times.

Change to 8mm Needle

10. Row: p2tog (yo & slip stitch) , k1

Increase Rows:

11. Row: *k7, m1* 8 times = 64 stitches

Next Row: k all stitches

Continue for 15 cm

Decrease Rows:

Setup Row: k8, plm

1. Row: k until 2 st before m, k2tog, slm

2. Row: k all stitches

Repeat 1 & 2 Row 3 times. Then work only 1. Row until 8 stitches are left.

Cut Wool and go with sewing needle through all stitches.

Et voila! Your present is done!


I really like Merino-Alpaca from Lanartus because it’s a very soft natural wool that is not too pricy. But you can use any other Wool in this Gauge as you like.


And like this it looks like when I am wearing it šŸ˜‰

Happy New Year
