There is something that happens when you fall in love with knitting, you begin to collect beautiful yarns. It doesn’t happen on purpose, but over time we grab one or two skeins because they are just too beautiful to leave behind. Twofold came to be, because of two amazing skeins of yarn I just had to have during our local yarn crawl (Rose City Yarn Crawl). I wanted to be use them together in a squishy brioche pattern, one that would give each color a chance to shine. Twofold is fun way to play with the placement of color within a simple brioche stitch pattern.
