Go with the Flow in this deliciously simple envelope style sweater. Worked flat in rhythmic single brioche and joined with ribbing (no seams!), you’ll find yourself reaching for this squishtastic wrap again and again.
**IMPORTANT TIPS – PLEASE READ**
Think of this as a regular knit pattern with a brioche stitch, rather than a brioche pattern. It’s written with an older style brioche single rib instruction that is almost too simple (literally just one row repeated, without a complicated set-up row) – you’ll find yourself wanting to make it harder than it is, but please do not overthink it. BRIOCHE EXPERIENCE IS NOT NECESSARY. Keep in mind that it takes a couple of inches to see the pattern develop; the first inch or two will look super strange and incorrect. Have faith! When swatching, use a multiple of 3 to work the pattern, as this is what the pattern requires to develop.
