So you’ve mastered two-color brioche rib. What next? Increases and decreases! Choose one of the following patterns: Heliotrope hat or cowl, or Brioche Pastiche hat.

Technique Requirements: knit/purl; cast on/bind off; working in the round; know how to work 2 color brioche rib; this is not a beginning brioche class.
