Nancy Marchant lives in Amsterdam where, she says, brioche stitch is as common as seed stitch is in the United States. Once Nancy learned the stitch, she began experimenting with its color and shaping possibilities. In this fitted sweater, she’s used two colors to create a shadow effect and deliberately worked increases and decreases in a way that calls attention to the gently nipped-in waist and flared collar.
