The combination of mosaic patterns and stockinette brioche makes me think of a grand garden with a beautiful hedge maze, meandering pathways, and long stretches of lush green grass. Loose yourself in the meditative slipping of stitches and fascinating textures you’ll create with fun mosaic knitting and the always impressive brioche. Wrap it twice for a long and lovely accent piece, or triple wrap it for cozy warmth. This pattern is a great introduction to mosaic and brioche knitting, as well as provisional cast on and three needle bind off, with detailed written instruction and links to tutorials in case you get stuck.
