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.
