Mixed Brioche Hand warmers

Mixed Brioche Hand warmers

Working in the round, this pair of hand warmers takes the knitter on a little Brioche journey from the plain, one colour stitch, through the reversible two colour to the mixed textured stitch in the middle.  The mix of tweed yarn and alpaca create a very tactile finish and gives a warm fabric, perfect for the cold days of Winter.  I love the bright pink with the grey tweed tones – warm and cosy in colour and texture.
