Brioche and Garter are a match made in heaven – and the combination offers endless possibilities. This third pattern of the Brioche Trilogy combines Brioche and Garter stitch in a graphic textured shawl with i-cord edges.
The name is a reference to Inky the Octopus, who escaped his tank in a New Zealand aquarium to live in freedom in Hawke’s Bay – and to my sister, who loves the name Inky and couldn’t stop talking about it!
This is a great pattern for yarn with high contrast. It works as a two-color version or as a three-color version with a contrasting border.
