From Modern Daily Knitting
From the legendary Nancy Marchant, four brand-new designs introduce brioche to the curious—and delight those who already love it.
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 we call "knitting below your skill level."
We were total brioche newbies when we started working with Nancy on this Field Guide. Now, with Nancy's guidance and a set of gorgeous designs, we're confident brioche knitters. We hope you have fun sharing this Field Guide with your knitters.
The goal with these designs is to give knitters who are new to brioche four projects that explore the elements of brioche. At the same time, these designs will delight knitters who already love brioche knitting.
Cushiest Cowl: Elemental, graphic, superfun. This is where we start. In two sizes, using the worsted yarns.
Honeycomb Scarf: Broken-rib brioche is one of the most beautiful fabrics we know. With two gradient yarns, it becomes a sophisticated swath of color. Use fingering weight gradient yarns.
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. Worsted weight wools are perfect here.
