Off the B-List is part of my 4 pattern collection Better Together: Flirtations with Brioche, a collaboration with Malabrigo Yarn for their Malabrigo Freelance Pattern Project.

A fun exploration into the space where brioche meets other knitting techniques!

Knit yourself happy with this diagonal brioche stole or poncho!

Combining knitting on the bias and Brioche, Off the B-List is a great
Worked from the bottom front corner to the back top corner, the reversible poncho or stole let’s you go from weekday to weekend with a flip of your… poncho! Pick a darker semi solid or kettle dyed color and a bright fun speckled yarn for the other side then choose what you feel like wearing!

Wear the subdued side out to the office, then take yourself off the B-List and turn up the sass for a dinner out.
Depending on your color choices, Off The B-List can be elegant and classy or fresh and sassy. Move to the front of the line and make the choice to never again be on the B-List!
