The Shortcut Brioche Pom Pom Hat is warm and squishy, topped with a fluffy pom pom. This pattern will teach you to work my Shortcut Brioche stitch in the round. If you can work in the round and work “knit 1, purl 1” ribbing, you can knit this hat! There are no decreases at the crown, or anywhere in the pattern, it’s just Shortcut Brioche Stitch.

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner

You Will Need:
US Size 11 (8 mm) Circular Knitting Needle, 32” long
74 (80, 88, 104, 114, 125) yds #6 Super Bulky weight yarn
Ruler or Tape Measure (for measuring gauge)
Very Large Yarn Needle or Blunt Tapestry Needle
Pom Pom Maker or pre-made, purchased Pom Pom
Locking Stitch Marker or Safety Pin

NOTE: Yarn requirements include enough yarn for a medium density pom pom, about 3” in diameter, and using about 10 yards of yarn. If you make your pom pom larger or more dense (by wrapping yarn around pom pom maker more times), that will require a bit more yarn than the instructions call for.

NOTE: Instructions and yarn requirements for Child Small are given outside the parentheses, and all following sizes are given inside the parentheses, like this: Child Small (Child Medium, Child Large, Adult Small, Adult Medium, Adult Large)

Gauge: 8 Shortcut Brioche stitches = 4” (10 cm), un-stretched

Hat is made with negative ease, meaning it is a bit smaller than the actual head circumference, so it will stretch to comfortably stay on the head.

Child Large: 19” (48.3 cm)
