The Brioche Kit contains two models knitted with our hand-dyed yarn Griffon: the hat and the cowl in brioche stitch. Warm and fluffy, this machine washable 100% merino wool will keep you warm in your favorite Self-Striping and semi-solid colour. Since the brioche stitch is reversible, you can wear your Brioche Kit both sides according to your mood!
This pattern is a perfect model for an introduction to two-tone circular brioche knitting.
In addition to the pattern, you will need the following materials to make this project:
