Loom Knit Brioche Paper Bag Hat
I saw a video a few years ago by Maria Eugenia Tovar for the Brioche stitch in two colors. Wow what a beautiful stitch. I knew I wanted to design a Brioche Paper Bag Hat for a baby because I was certain it would be super cute. I did and I love it. This little beanie works great for girls and boys.
Although a bit difficult for a beginner I’ve recorded a video tutorial to make the pattern doable for anyone wanting to try it. PLEASE be sure to watch the video completely before starting your project. I promise that it will make this awesome stitch so much easier to do.
The Pattern for the Brioche Stitch
This stitch is pretty basic, but can be confusing until you get used to it. Basically you knit 1 peg – skip 1 peg, yarn-over ( do not use the e-Wrap). On the next row you will purl the pegs you skipped and skip the peg you purled. It’s that simple.
After you Cast-on:
Row 1: Knit 1, Skip 1, Yarn-over ( Do NOT Use the e-Wrap)
Row 2: Skip 1, Yarn-over, Purl 2 Together
Row 3: Knit 2 Together, Skip 1, Yarn-over
Row 4: Skip 1, Yarn-over, Purl 2 Together
Repeat: Rows 3 and 4 for the desired length

I can not emphasis enough how important it is to watch the video from beginning to end. This will make this simple but easily confusing stitch pattern. I suggest taking a quick scan of the written pattern, watch the video then begin your own Brioche Paper Bag Hat for your baby.
