It turned out to be a super-quick knit, I managed to get it finished in just 5 days…!
I’m also pleased to report that Brioche knitting isn’t really as hard as it appears, when its a simple rib pattern like this one!
Quick recap on yarn choices for you…
The pattern calls for fingering-weight yarn. I used this amazing yarn from “All Wool that Ends Wool“. I think this colour-way is “its getting warmer”. I also used some left over Cascade Heritage Yarn left over from my “Random Stripe Cardigan” to use for the other colour.
Good news, its finished! 🙂
I got back from a week away recently and it was suddenly 10°C, I thought I’d knitted it too late in the year….the weather didn’t let me down now, suddenly dropping to 0°C and snowing….!!
This is the second cold-snap…in March…what’s going on, it should be spring by now!
So here it is! 🙂
It fits nicely inside my coat and the triangular bandana bit means that there isn’t a gap for the sneaky wind to gust into!
Its even long enough to cover my nose!! 🙂
Because it starts of being knit “in-the-round” and ends up bing knit “flat”, the pattern of the gradient wool changes. It starts off being a swirling block of colour, then end us being smaller chunks of colour.
I quite like the effect! 🙂
So there we go! I will be knitting more Brioche! I really enjoyed the way this turned out!
