What are you most proud of? That I did not quit when I said> I can not do this cast on, OR knit in dpns....Well, guess what> did the cast on, and kinda @run now with my dpns and circulars....the bind off, ehem...that I need to improve, but that is why I I have already started another one, in double the width of this one.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? to follow it through, and if at any point she/he feels like nuh! I am giving it up, DONT! once you get the hang of this stitch, you will be looking for other patterns to practice your skills on...! Nancy is a great teacher so you wont have any problem...look at me...I finished a scarf I thought I would leave for when I would start my PHD...ha! I fooled ya! Projects Half Done was that! just a joke of mine...soo DONT quit! OK?

Love how the black and white really make the design pop!! It is really beautiful. I am still deciding what colors I want to use, but now that I have seen your black and white I might use colors that are opposites like that.

the pattern is in the craftsy online class Explorations in Brioche knitting...even if someone gave you the pattern in writting, I dont think that you could do have to see how its done...Brioche is a very one of a kind, brake the rules teqnique I am afraid....not difficult, but has its tricks and I would recommend you sign up for the class..Nancy is a great teacher!
