Brioche-ing!

There are so many beautiful projects made with brioche-stitching out there right now. Brioche patterns look almost like ribbing stitches but with this technique and two colours you can make a fully reversible fabric that far surpasses good ol’ rib in its scope.

We are still in love with the beautiful Crosshatch Scarf pattern we made last year from Brooklyn Tweed’s Woolens Collection.

There are a few Indie Pattern Designers that are just brioche-crazy, in a good way. One of them is Stephen West, who has many brioche patterns, hats, scarves, sweaters and wraps including the one pictured above called Briochevron Cowl and Scarf

Andrea Mowry has some gorgeous patterns too including this fantastic hat called Vintage Prim.

Then there are some very advanced brioche patterns out there like this one by Lesley Anne Robinson. It’s called Dandelion Fields.  

There are also more simple one like the Brioche Bandana Cowl by Lavanya Patricella.

All four of these designers have many more brioche patterns in their lexicon, I encourage you to check them out if you are interested in this kind of knitted fabric. If you are intimidated to start your first Brioche Pattern all on your own then you are in luck, we have a class for that, and it’s this coming week!
