brioche rib stitch floppy

brioche floppy
This was a quick and easy knit that only took a couple hours to do. I didnt follow a pattern or have a plan when I started, I simply cast on and then I was done. I think it's perfect for good or bad hair days. It may have actually taken me longer to get a picture of it then it did to knit it up. I found that again it isn't easy getting a picture of yourself is it? My hope was to get a nice shot detailing the stitch but after many attemps I ended up with this one.

I used Knit Picks Wool of the Andes. It was my first time working with this lovely yarn and I found it to be soft, squishy and in bulky knits up really fast. I have been wanting to learn the brioche stitch for a while and am happy I chose it with this yarn. This is such a fun stitch thats reversable and creates a thick and cushy surface. The versatility would make it a great stitch for a scarf or throw as well.

Happy Friday! Here's wishing you a wonderful weekend full of things that make you smile.
