Envelop yourself in an overwhelming expanse of beautiful brioche with this Briochevron Shlanket. DK & worsted weight yarns compose the luscious fabric starting with an I-cord cast on. Increases & decreases in two-color brioche form the chevron angles. The small beginning grows gradually into a wide asymmetrical shape, perfect for wrapping yourself in cozy comfort.
