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

Vitamin B is a top down Spring (or Fall) garment
with a subtle textural Brioche Insertion on the left side and slight A-line shaping for a figure flattering look.
3/4 sleeves and I-cord trim at the hems and neckline can be worked in the main color or in the contrast color for an added pop of color.

Worked in one piece from the neck edge to the armholes, then the sleeve stitches are set aside for the sleeves to be worked in the round later.
Vitamin B is then worked in the round until the start of the Brioche Insertion, at which point the body will be worked flat down to the hem.

I love seeing what everyone knits, share your version online using the #VitaminBsweater and #BriocheInsertion hashtags!
