We love knitting brioche but wanted to try something a little different. So when I discovered the honeycomb brioche stitch, I thought it would make a great hat. And I love the high contrast ribbing and how it really shows off the beauty of the yarn. This is a great pattern for using some yarn leftovers since you need less than half a skein of each color. The word 'Madhukara', means honey maker in Sanskrit, so we thought it was the perfect name for this honeycomb hat design.
