New year. New challenges. I have a lot of scrap yarn that I needs to be used. I decided to try basic brioche knitting. The pattern uses ~30 g of two different colors of yarn and the result is a 100% reversible hat. Perfect for getting rid of those small bits of left over yarn.
Once I got the hang of the stitches, it really wasn’t that hard to learn. I do recommend placing “lifelines” every inch or so. I still struggle with reorganizing my stitches if I actually pull a stitch off my needle while working. That’s the worst.
The pattern I used was, Harlow by Drea Renee Knits. She has some great YouTube tutorials to go along with the hat, so even if you’ve never knit brioche, it isn’t too hard to learn.

Glad I mastered the pattern and can now tackle some of my yarn stash!
