World-renowned brioche knitting expert Nancy Marchant takes this versatile European stitch--which creates a luxurious, reversible ribbed fabric--to a new level In her groundbreaking collection, Marchant works brioche in two colors, forming graceful, undulating textures with increases and decreases. She explains everything from how to hold the yarn and cast on (offering multiple options) to creating the basic fabric and reading two-color charts. The stitch library presents 75 all-new patterns, and there are an additional 12 in luscious shawl and scarf projects.
Born in Indiana, Nancy Marchant first encountered brioche when she moved to the Netherlands in 1976. She has written articles about and designed knitwear featuring brioche stitch for Vogue Knitting and many other knitting magazines, and is also the author of the bestselling Knitting Brioche (North Light). She maintains a website at briocheknitting.com and teaches the technique at consumer and trade shows across the US as well as in an online class on craftsy.com called "Explorations in Brioche Knitting."
