Yesterday in the comments Gayle asked what the reverse side of Miri looks like. The answer is, “kind of unexpected.”
The color stripes trick the eye into thinking that it’s garter stitch in between the brioche sections. But as you can see, it’s reverse stockinette all the way. There is also some overall texture happening because you increase every fourth round, then decrease all around in between each color section.
I managed to slip outside in between rain storms today and catch some pictures. (Although the light still wasn’t great… but in winter here, you work with what you get.) Here’s a better picture of the fronts.
By the way, I found this interesting brioche scarf pattern on Ravelry the other day, if you want to try brioche in a more limited fashion. BRIOCHE MADNESS.
In chicken news, the chickens are molting. I fail to understand why they lose all their feathers in October/November rather than July/August, but that’s just me.
Poor Dolly and her little bald head!
