Simple Brioche Beanie Kit by Helena Timms


We now offer handy kits of this pattern. All kits include enough yarn to make this splendid hat, along with a limited edition button badge and a fab project bag to keep it all safe. Happy knitting!

The beautiful and oh-so-simple Brioche Beanie is a free pattern designed by our very own Helena Timms. You can find it here on Ravelry.

This beginner-friendly knitting pattern has been designed by Helena and cor’, is it a stunner! It’s a simple brioche pattern (great if you’re yet to try out the stitch!) for a slouchy and cosy beanie with a folded up brim and a big fluffy pompom. Written for one adult size – the stretchy nature of the brioche stitch means it will comfortably fit most head sizes. It is knit from the bottom up with a stretch cast on, single colour brioche, and decreases at the crown.


This hat originally used our Pure Elements Gradient Set, but also works perfectly in our Devon Naturals gradients! Kits include 4x 25g mini skeins.
