A cable and brioche hat that can be worked in sport, DK, worsted, or aran weight yarn. This hat is worked from the bottom up in the round and is sized from infant through large adult. This hat is not only a good stash buster because it is written for different yarn weights and gauges, for all sizes, but it is a great beginning brioche pattern, because you work the brioche in 5 stitch sections between the cables. The brioche sections really help highlight the cables.
