This + That is a regular feature collecting making - related bits and pieces from around the web for your browsing pleasure.

This week's This + That feature is all about brioche - I'm completely in love with both these shawl designs that feature this stitch.  Have you ever tried brioche?  It's a stitch technique where you knit the row twice before turning your work, creating a thickly textured, double sided fabric that has a similar feel to fisherman's rib.  It's luxurious and warm especially when it's knit up in a yarn like a merino wool. 

This shawl from Andrea Mowry of Drea Renee Knits: Rose Gold, now available on Ravelry

That crescent shawl design from Mara Licole of Mara Licole Knit Studio, coming soon!  

I'm dreaming of casting both of these designs on someday, and if you're into brioche patterns, be sure to check out the rest of Andrea's designs - many of them feature brioche, even if it's a new technique for you!
