First Project of the Year

My first finished knitting project of 2016.

I was playing around with brioche knitting and came up with this simple pattern for a pair of fingerless mittens.  One colour of worsted weight wool, the brioche knit and brioche purl stitch to create the texture pattern, a few simple increases to make the thumb gusset and voila, a pair of mitts. The year is off to a good start!

Good for you! I've tried Brioche twice and failed so far -- despite taking two classes!
