This is the third in the series of getting to know Brioche. This is the project we have been working toward: creating a complex, exquisite fabric that is beautiful on both sides. This makes it perfect for scarves, shawls or jacket borders: anything that might show the back side. We will knit one of the scarves by Nancy Marchant, the guru of Brioche knitting.
What you’ll learn:
- How to work complex, twisting shapes in 2 color Brioche.
