Brioche is one of the designer's favorite stitches. She loves the plush texture and strong lines of the dimensional ribbed pattern. In this sleeveless, V-necked top, she uses double decreases to shape the neckline and armhole at the same time.

Rewarding knitting Review by Judith Geisser

This was my first experience with Brioches. Very easy and goes up quickly. Beautiful lines where the V-neck splits. I would suggest making a smaller size due to the normal stretch of the stitch.
