sashiko brioche wrap
This fluffy, textured wrap features a stitch pattern inspired by traditional Japanese sashiko embroidery. If you’ve done basic brioche before or you’re new to brioche but feeling adventurous, this project is for you!
The finished wrap can be worn in a number of ways. Turn back one edge to form a faux collar featuring the color from the opposite side, wear it like a scarf, or wrap it around and add your favorite shawl pin. The tapered corners give it a polished, elegant look no matter how you wear it.
about the pattern
If you’ve been on the fence about trying two-color brioche, this pattern is a great place to start! All increases and decreases happen in the same row on the front side of the work, so it’s possible to work without the instructions after the first few repeats. The stitch pattern is created with only one type of decrease and one type of increase, making it a manageable project even if you’ve never done brioche increases or decreases before.
This pattern includes a photo tutorial for the two-color i-cord cast on which creates a springy dimensional edging. Two versions of the wrap are also included – one in Aran weight and one in Sport weight. Available as a pdf download from Ravelry.
myriad brioche shawl
Inspired by ripples on the surface of water, this shawl was designed during the rainy season in Singapore where I was able to watch the patterns of rain on water every single day.
Knit in two-color brioche, this triangular shawl features yarns from two places whose histories are shaped by ocean-going trade - a delightful speckled yarn (Papiput Tough Sock from Indonesia) and a rich semi-solid (Infinite Twist Helix, dyed in Singapore).
