Simple Brioche Beanie Pattern – Helena Timms

The beautiful and oh-so-simple Brioche Beanie is designed by our very own Helena Timms. And she’s very kindly decided to offer it as a free pattern, as a little thank you to all you wonderful souls who’ve supported us over our first few months of business ownership.

This beginner-friendly knitting pattern has been designed by Helena to partner our ‘Pure Elements’ yarn collection, 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. Knit from the bottom up with stretch cast on, single colour brioche, and decreases at the crown. Perfect for a bit of fireside, winter knitting!


This hat uses our Pure Elements Gradient Set, which includes 4, 25g mini skeins in a gentle, neutral gradient. Alternatively you can just use one 100g skein of Pure Elements yarn, or any DK yarn to achieve gauge.
