Clockwork in Brioche
This brioche beauty begins with an I-cord CO followed by increases that form the arched shape. Two additional colors are featured in the syncopated brioche border. The long curved shape drapes comfortably over the shoulders. You can also wrap the wingtips round and round for a cozy scarf.
Finished Measurements: 15” / 38cm from CO to BO, 80” / 203cm wingspan length. Measurements taken after blocking.
At the end of Row 1 (RS) after picking up stitches, do not turn to work WS. Slide sts to other end of the needle to introduce your second color. At the end of Row 1, you will have both colors hanging at the same end ready to work WS.
