Collect your favorite DK and worsted weight yarns and knit the brioche blanket of your dreams. Begin with an I-cord cast on and work the briochevron stitch while you imagine your next striping sequence. The sample shows mostly speckled colors for the foreground (MC) and mostly solid color pops for the background (CC). Only one strand of yarn is changed at a time for a gradual overlapping color effect. Bundle yourself in brioche and enjoy your new knitting blanket!
