I have been enchanted with brioche for quite some time and love making useful items for the home. This two-color bulky brioche stitch blanket is a dreary winter day’s cure. Cozy, modern, and stylish, you’ll feel like a butterfly wrapped up in the chrysalis before emerging into the sunshine. This blanket was inspired by the chunky blankets featured in the glamourous home décor magazines that arrive at my doorstep. I love to leaf through them and dream of the perfect throw and the perfect cup of cocoa. The Chrysalis Brioche Blanket is ideally used at your cabin in the woods next to the fireplace with a great book and an even better knitting project… or wherever else your wintertime dreams may take you!
This blanket is worked in one piece from the bottom up.
