WIP Wednesday: Mixed Edition

Things are going along pretty well on the sweater. The rows are getting longer and the whole thing is getting heavier. My hands/wrists are already starting to feel it. So I thought it best I begin alternating with another project.

Enter The Hawthorne Cowl by Circle of Stitches. It is a 2 color brioche cowl. I’m using red Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran and gray Cascade 220. This will be my first two color brioche in the round project. So far things haven’t gone well but I haven’t given up yet. On the first go I used the wrong yarn for the main color and contrast color. I really would like the red to be in the background. So I’ll be starting the brioche part again. Wish me luck because this is supposed to be a gift and the recipient really likes squishy.

  1. Both projects look like fun knits. Nice colors. You’ll get the hang of brioche in no time. Enjoy the squishiness!

  4. Your sweater is looking great! Heavy projects can definitely be a strain – good that you have an alternate. The cowl looks very cool and very squishy!

    I have forgotten how to knit brioche; Steven Be would be disappointed.

    I don’t know why but I am not a fan of brioche knitting I don’t like the look and it looks like it takes way too much yarn. The other thing is I have to tik back a lot and with that kind of thing I don’t think it would be very fun. It’s bad enough with lace and cable, which I’ve learned to “fix” rather than rip out.
