Brioche Loop

Can one design be fun and elegant at the same time? I think Tanja’s brioche cowl proves it can. The dark background is the perfect canvas for the multicolored yarn to shine. A simple colorwork would be fine, but the brioche technique elevates this cowl to another level.

Offbeat Cowl 

Valentina’s cowl was inspired by the offbeat rhythm, which remains regular but is shifted by single a beat. In the same way, the stripes of the brioche move from side to side, creating colorful segments. Try this lovely pattern even if you’ve never knitted brioche before.

Marilee Scarf 

The brioche knitting gives us so many possibilities when it comes to playing with colors. You can experiment with contrasting shades and knit a piece that can make a bold fashion statement or stay within one color palette for something more subtle instead. So convenient, right?
