The Briosketweave Beanie

The Briosketweave Beanie combines brioche knitting with a new stitch I created to solve the issue of having a clean overlap of brioche columns while using only decreases and increases.

The stitch pattern of the beanie creates an outer basketweave design and small diamonds of the contrast color set just behind. It is reversible, warm, and constructs bottom-up with mostly simple brioche knitting mixed with the occasional pattern row.

It’s impossible to confirm but I think I invented a stitch to make this pattern happen. It combines a left leaning Brioche decrease with a BrkYoBrk Brioche increase in the same stitch to generate a diamond-like pattern that is warm but also breathable.
