Update June 2023:

I’ve completely revamped Brioche Pastiche for my beginning brioche classes. Knit a hat or a cowl; I’ve got you covered. We start with an introduction to 2 color brioche rib. From there we have options to continue in rib if you’d like a plain hat or cowl, or move into increases and decreases to form the climbing leaves.

There are 2 crown shapings for the hat, a 4 section swirl, and a 6 section swirl. So many options!

Pastiche: A piece consisting of motifs or techniques borrowed from other sources. I’ve taken my favorite elements from two designs in my Brioche Hat Trick Collection, and recombined them especially for my 2 color brioche in the round knitting classes.

Two contrasting colors will make your brioche dreams come true.

July 2020: I’ve added a tutorial for another way to handle the tricky bits at the beginning/end of rounds; see my PDXKnitterati Tutorials page if you’d like to try an alternate way.
