Brioche for Teatime
It might be a total French cliché, but slices of brioche with butter is still one of my favourite teatime treats. As squishy as its pastry cousin, the brioche stitch can be used to create some stunning motifs and is a delight to design with.
The Brioche for Teatime shawl is worked from the top centre down with i-cord selvedges. Its body alternates between brioche stitch patterns and garter stitch sections, and features a laterally worked brioche border.
