When Laurie from Feel Good Yarn Co. approached me to design a new brioche hat with her SilverSpun® yarn, I knew I wanted to create something totally different. I had this idea to use brioche increases and decreases to create interesting angles in the fabric. Boy, was I surprised by the end result! One side ended up pulling down, which the other side pulled up! The asymmetry was much more drastic than I had anticipated, so I knew I had to come up with a plan to even out the hat for wearability. That’s where the garter stitch striped short rows came in. Brioche really does have a mind of its own!
While visiting my family in Michigan this past summer, I was lucky enough to enlist the help of my super talented brother photographer, Peter Mowry! He took some gorgeous photos, and really helped to showcase my new design.
