Right Side
Wrong Side
Yarn: King Cole Merino Blend DK, 100% Superwash Wool, in Wildrose. and Berocco Ultra Alpaca Worsted, 50% Alpaca/50% Wool in Boysenberry Mix

Needles: 4 mm / 7 US

Gauge: 4 stitches and 5 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Two-Colour Brioche Stitch

Comments: Isn't this just the coolest stitch?!  I love the effect of the two colours, and think you could to lots with this design... what if you changed the background yarn, so that it faded from dark to light, or from one colour to another....  Technically, there's no way to differentiate between the right and wrong sides (except for the cast-on and cast-off rows), so you could be really creative with it.  Work it on slightly too-small needles for the best smooshyness.
