Light filters through shades of dusk to introduce knitters to a two-colored slipped stitch design in Shadowlands. Like mountain peaks on a range, light and dark cables interplay, never entwining yet always connecting. As beautiful as the sun-kissed mountaintops and as rare as a solo sunset, Shadowlands is sure to draw every eye. Construction: in the round, seamlessly, only one color is used at a time.

Puddles and I are so excited to introduce something we’ve not done before – a pattern designed to learn and practice Lindsay’s Invisible Short Rows for 2 color brioche knitting! We could have just created a dishcloth, but that wouldn’t be very “Knit Eco Chic” so instead we created a fun faux-bius with directions for an optional skinny scarf.

An exciting 10th anniversary celebration I wasn’t expecting was to be invited to interview with Antionette.
Please join me in welcoming Karista of Sweet Mountain Crafts to the blog today. I’ve followed Sweet Mountain Crafts on IG for a while and love the gorgeous yarn and beautiful scenery.
After a few false starts… The sweater is underway! The back to the ‘join in rnd’ part is complete, which gave me an opportunity to test the full length of the chart once through.
One of the things I love most about brioche knitting is the reversible nature of the stitch. When it came to short rows, though, the techniques I could find all “displayed” the short rows in varying degrees of glaring announcements “there is a short row here!” I knew they had to be a way to make it completely invisible.
The brioche slip, slip, slip & knit the 3 brioche slipped stitches together (brsssk) is demonstrated in today’s stitch tutorial.
How do you work your brioche knitting? I was a one color at a time gal, but then I wondered, could it be done simultaneously? The answer is yes!
Puddles has started an “introduction” channel so we can all get to know each other. And the first “fun” in the “fun and games” channel is a social media photo challenge.
