Sweet Pink Honey!

This pattern is from Interweave Knits, and I was first drawn to the texture. Brioche-stitch... which is different than Brioche pattern?
It was easy and quick enough, and I like the look of the texture. I found the only problem was that I couldn't read the pattern too well, so if I put it down or paid too much attention to the movie, I found I lost my place.
The yarn is alpaca that I bought from alpaca farmers at the Black Sheep gathering in Oregon a few years ago. It is fuzzy and luxe.
Love it as a beret. But it is too pink: If I pull it over my ears cloche-style, it makes me look like a big penis head.
I asked DBF how he liked the texture, and he said, "It just looks like regular, only looser." Should have just made this with like size 18 needles?
