It started in January, with a scarf.
This is the Never Fail Scarf, a free pattern from Mason-Dixon Knitting. Really fast, and a great learning tool for single color brioche knit flat.
Of course I had to figure out how to make that work in the round, for a timely pink-ish hat.
Then in February I took a brioche knitting class with JC Briar at Madrona. We worked flat samples, with selvages.
I forgot all about it, until this past week. After birthing my Cannon Beach Cowl & Mitts by knitting 3 cowls and 2 sets of mitts, I needed something fairly mindless to knit. Two color brioche in the round fit the bill.
And like Cannon Beach, it’s still only one color worked per round! I found this to be much simpler than two color brioche knit flat. No selvage stitches, and no way to choose the wrong working yarn. It was quick. So quick I had to get yarn to knit one for a friend.
And there you go. Do you want to try it? I’m writing up some instructions that make sense to me, link coming soon.
And because mental vacation is over…I’m playing with patterning. More on that later.
Do you brioche? Do you wanna? So zen!
