If you’ve been looking for a simple-but-stunning pattern to try your hand at brioche and hone your skills, this wrap is for you!
Featuring a springy, dimensional i-cord edging and a unique double color gradient, this reversible rectangular wrap is an elegant and polished addition to your knitted wardrobe.
The Twin Gradient yarn used on this project is truly a labor of love - two strands are dyed together so that they are exact duplicates. This painstaking process yields a double treat - you get to enjoy every lovely speckle and tonal color change twice.
The pattern includes a photo tutorial for the two-color i-cord cast on, and two pattern versions – the original Bounded Brioche Wrap in Aran weight, and Rothko in Sport weight featuring a gorgeous gradient.
