Elevate is an extra-large rectangular wrap, knit on the bias in two-color brioche and garter stitch with subtle yet graphic brioche elements in alternating colors.
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.
This pattern was originally published in Laine Magazine, Issue 5, May 2018, in the larger version knit with Biches & Bûches Le Cashmere et Lambswool.
The digital pattern also includes instructions for a smaller version knit at a tighter gauge.
