Husk Wrap

June 14, 2017   /   byPurl Bee  / Categories :  Feeds

The rhythm of brioche stitch, the beauty of its fabric and its innumerable variations always renews my excitement for knitting brioche. Whenever I get my hands on a new yarn, it is always one of the first stitches I try!

Purl Soho’s brand new Field Linen in a simple brioche stitch showed me once again that this stitch has no bounds. The crisp hatched lines, the lightweight, dimensional fabric, and the scalloped edges make our Husk Wrap a very elegant affair!

For our Wrap we chose the golden neutral, Wheat Berry, a color that glows like a summer field under a warm sun. So much beauty and fascination, our Husk Wrap will certainly kindle your love for both linen and brioche stitch! -Jake
