Rust on Leaves

Brioche stitch is all the rage right now, thanks to Nancy Marchant and Stephen West. I wanted to see what the fuss was about and cast on a small, two-color brioche hat.

Once you get the hang of it – there’s just two rows to alternate – it’s goes pretty smoothly. Somewhat slower than normal knitting but you get into a rhythm, and it’s not that complicated.

But. The pattern I’d chosen had leaves made with different increases and decreases – in brioche! Trying to wrap my head (and needles) around K5tog in brioche was, um, challenging to say the least.

  • On Ravelry: Rust on Leaves

  • Pattern: Frost on Leaves by Midori Hirose

  • Yarn: Lang Yarns Novena (50% wool, 30% alpaca, 20% nylon), 20 g/88 m/96 yd of #0103 gray (MC) and 19 g/83 m/91 yd in #0161 rust (CC)

  • Needles: 4.5 mm

  • Mods: Completely missed the part where it said to work K1, P1 ribbing before starting brioche stitch. Whoops! :D
