This is a unique brioche blanket and the bigger brother/sister to the Sprouting Brioche Baby Blanket. Construction begins in the center using either the magic loop or double pointed needles. Then increases, eventually knitting in the round on 2 circular needles. The final measurements are a ruffling 31” x 31” at it’s widest points. The increases are simple to follow with placed stitch markers. Two different weight yarns are used to create a more delicate brioche fabric.

Two US 7 40”-60” circular needles
20 stitch markers
370 yards of Hedgehog Fibres DK or similar DK weight yarn (foreground, color A in pattern)
450 Yards of Malabrigo Twist or similar Aran weight yarn (background, color B in pattern).
90 yards of Cascade 220 superwash (ruffling border, color C in pattern).
