What materials did you use? One hank of Madelinetosh Tosh Merino DK in Tart, and one of the color Fjord with 4.5mm bamboo DPNs. I wanted to stay away from Superwash but I couldn't resist these two colors together.

What are you most proud of? I finally understand the ins and outs of brioche knitting. It's incredibly satisfying to complete such a beautiful pattern, knowing how difficult I found it to be in the beginning.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient with yourself. Make mistakes and learn from them. The thing that saved me was lifelines. Utilize lifelines every repeat! I paid close attention and had to rip back to the lifeline more than once and I'm confident in my brioche abilities. :)
