Field Guide No. 21: Brioche is perfect for knitters new to the technique, with how-to instructions, tips and hints, and four patterns that set a knitter up for brioche glory.
The focus is on two-color brioche, because that’s the most straightforward way to get the hang of it.
Experienced brioche knitters will love this Field Guide, too. These designs are modern and simple, perfect for that the sweet spot MDK calls “knitting below your skill level.”
Cushiest Cowl: Elemental, graphic, superfun. This is a great starting point. In two sizes, using the worsted yarns from your shop.
Honeycomb Scarf: Broken-rib brioche is one of the most beautiful knitted fabrics. With two gradient yarns, it becomes a sophisticated swath of color. Use a fingering weight gradient yarns such as the Freia Shawl Balls.
Dotty Wrist Warmers: Colorful snack-sized brioche. Includes a set of stitch patterns for varying the look. Worsted weight wool.
Cocoon Top: Nancy’s endless inventiveness gives us this snuggly layering piece—two-color brioche melded with a stitch pattern that adds graphic interest. Our worsted weight wools are perfect here.
