Brioche knitting creates a bouncy, thick fabric that is perfect for warm mitts! Even simple increases in brioche can become decorative and allow the stitch pattern to shine.
These mitts are a great way to increase your brioche skills, working from single colour brioche in the round into two-colour brioche. From there you try out syncopation and a decorative increase for the thumb.
