Brioche Booster was an exclusive pattern for the 1st kit of 2017’s M Club! It uses 1 600 yard skein of Feederbrook Farm, Entropy 2-ply (100% Blue Faced Leicester)… the fleece is dyed and then sent to the mill to be spun, so no two skeins are exactly the same!

Kits available here:
Brioche Booster is worked in the round. You start with a provisional cast on and work a cylinder that alternates between 2-color-brioche and lace patterns separated by garter stitch bands.
This allows the gentle color changes of Feederbrook Farms Entropy to take center stage and not compete with the patterning.
You can choose to place beads in the lace sections, or not! Totally up to you!
