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.
Cushiest Cowl: Elemental, graphic, superfun. This is where we start. In two sizes, using the worsted yarns from your shop.
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 your shop’s 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. Your shop’s worsted weight wools are perfect here.
