Brioche: Not Just for Breakfast Anymore


#41

I agree - sent her an email as well!

Thanks, y’all–working on this and will let you know asap!


#43

I’m sorry that you’ve run into this, and thanks for bringing it up.
All stitches that aren’t in the increase or decrease should be worked as established, so please work those 2 stitches in the pattern.


#44

Thanks Nell. I love the pattern so far!


#45

Well, I finished the Nesting Wrap! I just need to block it and take pictures. It’s long, lovely, soft and luxurious - everything I was looking for! Thank you for a great pattern, Bristol Ivy!

I can’t wait to see your pix. I’m halfway through with mine, loving the softness of the brioche.

Franklin Habit’s Faucett is an easy Brioche starter pattern - it turns out beautifully with a silk blend yarn with good stitch definition.

Oh, it’s not my pattern - I just tested it for MDK. The thanks go to the amazing Bristol Ivy…

Oops - thank you! Will edit my post!

I teach a class in 2 color Brioche in the round. We make a cowl together and the class is very popular. I teach at Needlecraft Cottage, just a block from the beach.

So I am adoring this project! It’s my first brioche, and save for a small challenge involving the placement of marker B, it has been smooth sailing. Unfortunately, I don’t have the budget for cashmere just yet, but I do have the budget for one of my favorite yarns, Woolfolk Får. It is ridiculously soft and puffy and glorious.

And here’s the other side:

That looks so fantastic! I’ve been wearing my finished Nesting Wrap around
town today, and I keep looking at the brioche stitches and really can’t
believe somebody figured out how to do it.

Isn’t it the cushiest? I love how dimensional it makes the fabric. I didn’t
block it very much–just some steam.

My one tip for making the brioche go faster? I kept getting hung up on
circs–the yarnovers tended to snag at the join, so I spent a lot of time
fooling with that. I kept wishing for a long DPN, but couldn’t find one.
UNTIL. I found some 10 1/2" double pointed needles, 8 or 9" long. I got
those rubber point protectors, put one on one end of each needle. When it
came time to slide the stitches back to the other side, I moved the point
protector to the other end of the needle. SO much faster. This wouldn’t
work with a really wide piece of brioche, but for this, it worked well.
