For her fabulous Brioche Bomber Cardigan, Brandi Cheyenne Harper uses the distinctive ribbing of brioche stitch to carve around the body of the wearer. Like smaller streams joining bigger rivers, the movement in the stitches is all about flow. Knit from the bottom up in one piece, this is a fun, challenging knit: lots of brioche decreases to keep your brain working and very thoughtful ways to knit in tidy edges and a stand-up collar! And because Brandi loves a design statement, she expresses herself here with the big, beautiful stitches of our sumptuous Woolly Wool, a single-ply, super bulky, wonderfully plump with a soft and lovely touch!
