cast on for Brioche Frileuse Hat

I’ve started another Frileuse hat, in Brioche, in the Double Dutch technique (link to page with 45 s video explaining this). Using soft merino in fingering weight. The white one is from Stof tot Verven. The dreamy bluegreen one is handdyed by Chasing Clouds.

Pattern = Frileuse Hat by Oxhy Dryle. Link to my first Frileuse hat here.

I’ve cast on just 4 stitches and increases 8 every other row. By now I’ve increased enough and should now just knit 10 cm straight on to make the hat.

Shoulda, coulda. It would get me “simple” brioche hat in just stripes. I’m having too much fun with making little leaflike shapes!

So every now and then I increase 3 stitches and decrease 3 stitches near each other.

I like how Brioche is reversable. No leaves but snow trails going down a mountain:

I plan to make an accompagnying cowl. And some wristcuffs too. I’m wearing the handspun ones (cuffs and cowl) all the time and it would be lovely to have another set, in pretty brioche made from round spun yarn, with clear stitch definition.

Also: sparkles! I’m in a snowy mood this time of the year.
