A modern take on brioche stitch with gorgeous wearable garments and accessories that knitters will love.
Knitters will create striking colorwork and beautiful brioche cable designs with Brioche Chic. Author Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark offers a solid introduction to brioche knitting and a collection of 22 garments and accessories for women and men, including hats, scarves, cowls, mittens, pullovers, vests, and cardigans. Striking brioche stitch designs that are not overwhelming or full of complicated techniques will reel in readers to this fun style of knitting.
Starting with the basics, Brioche Chic offers mini collections of garments revolving around a specific set of techniques. Basic brioche knitting starts the first section, as Mercedes shows how the basic rib pattern can be adapted to simple motifs, lace, and various textures. Later, she offers more complex designs such as cables and various types of two-color brioche. Some of the featured garments are all-over brioche, while others integrate brioche with stockinette stitch for more streamlined, flattering designs.
