levate is an extra-large rectangular wrap which is knitted on the bias in two-colour brioche and garter stitch with subtle yet graphic brioche elements in alternating colours. The construction – from corner to corner – makes this a very interesting knit: It revolves around the simultaneously knit brioche border that grows wider at the starting and ending points of the pattern, thanks to some cleverly placed increases and decreases and a little bit of brioche short-row shaping. An attached i-cord border adds a clean finish to this understated design that gives the natural sophistication of the yarn plenty of room to shine.
