Mock Brioche, Mock the Cold!
Created By: Nicole Ivey
Craft: knit
Pattern Source: other:

This mock brioche stitch will whip this seemingly firm and scratchy yarn into the most squishy, delish thing you have ever felt! Please let me know what you think!
I used size 11 needles, and used 1 skein Wool-Ease Chunky in Nantucket.
I cast on 22 stitches (do multiples of 4 then add 2 to your total ) and work the stitch pattern (simple 2 row repeat!) until desired circumference when wrapped. For a quick reference, the stitch goes like this:
(repeat between ’s)
Row 1:k3,p1* k2
Row 2: p1,k3,p1 k1

I knit mine 26”. When you get to the desired length, work three simple k2tog’s and yarn overs (or however many for the number of buttons you choose) evenly into a row 1. Work a couple more rows of the stitch starting back with a Row 2, until you have clearance for your buttons (don’t want them hanging off the edge!) and voila! Bind off following stitch pattern (I bound off a Row 1). Fold over to expose the side you like best and sew your buttons accordingly up the right edge! ENJOY! It only took me 3 hours to make this, and I knit at a fairly relaxed pace.
