Check out this for Briochealicious-ness!

After the success of my first brioche project I decided to try another one.  This time slightly larger in scale.  The only rule I gave myself was that I had to use stash yarn to make it.

I have a fair amount of cascade heritage fingering weight yarn, so I decided to look for some fingering weight projects.  I found a few that I liked the look of,

There was “All About That Brioche” by Lisa Hannes.  I’m not a huge fan of garter stitch though so this one may not  be for me.

“Reya” by Berangere Cailliau.  I love the design of this one, it said something about short-rows though and I fancied something simple and mindless to knit at the moment, so I decided to park this one for another day

So I decided on “Briochette” by Nadia Crétin-Léchenne. Unfortunately, when i checked a bit closer, I didn’t quite have enough yarn in the right sort of colours, so this one went back into the queue!

Then I got totally distracted and found some beautiful shawls…but without brioche!

Like “Refracted” by Jennifer Dassau

and “Drachenfels” by Melanie Berg

and “Emiliana” also by Lisa Hannes

These three have gone on my wish-list, but as this was supposed to be a brioche project I decided not to do them right now.

So I finally settled on “Briochealicious” by Andrea Mowry

I’m making it using the Cascade Heritage yarn that I had stashed.  I’ve got a cream for the main colour, with a blue stripe, a pinky/purple stripe and a teal stripe!

I’m underway with the knitting, so I’ll pop back soon with an update on how I’m getting on! 🙂

Happy Easter everyone!

      You’ve just reminded me: soon as I’ve finished my current project, I MUST get into brioche in the round ! Been meaning to get on top of this for ages …

  1. Oooh, Reya is lovely! I think I’ll stick with that cowl for a first brioche project, though. Much smaller and (theoretically) easier to learn on.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this post...please leave comments below!
