If you want to use up yarn from your stash, here's a sneak peek at the video tutorial for how to mix and match different yarns with mohair.

Video sneak peek

Broadleaf is knit using one strand of mohair held with one strand of sock yarn to create a luxurious, highly textural brioche motif on the front and back, With an optional stockinette back included in the pattern. Knit flat in two pieces, then seamed using a mattress stitch along the sides and shoulder, stitches are then picked up for the sleeves and knit in the round. Featuring a flattering drape, dropped sleeves and boatneck, Broadleaf is cozy and easy to wear. 

 

The depth of texture and stunning color effects made possible through brioche makes Broadleaf an addictive and exciting knit. Our samples feature brilliantly colorful mohair and sock yarn indie-dyed by Spun Right Round, both fibers are dyed the same color but when held together create an eye-catching muted stained glass effect. Choose an accent color for the foreground of the brioche in a single strand of sock yarn to accentuate the organic motif of Broadleaf.
