"Well, let me tell you, this book leaves you fearless when it comes to the ever-so-intimating Brioche stitch." --Dishcloth Diva Knits On"Brioche Chic isn't just a pattern book. It's a book that takes you from A to Z in the fascinating technique of brioche knitting. Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark covers basic brioche stitches, preferred cast-on and bind-off methods, increases and decreases in brioche, reading brioche charts, 2 color brioche knitting, and brioche cables. This is a book that can really walk you through a new technique from absolute beginner to advanced-level work." --Poetry in Yarn"Brioche can be a complex subject, and Mercedes breaks down the process of creating lovely one and two-colored brioche in simple, easier to comprehend bits. The book itself is bright, light and cheerful--which would make it a terrific gift for a knitter on your list who is ready to move into a new technique--with very clear illustrations, many charts (love that!) and excellent photography of the garments and details." --Mode Knit"Brioche Chic is a beautiful collection of brioche stitch knitting patterns and instructions." --Ewe Ewe"As you will find in all good technique-based knitting books, the first chapter focuses on understanding terms and techniques. Excellent line drawings demonstrate the yarn and stitch manipulations while close-up photos provide examples of finished fabrics utilizing the specified techniques." --Two Sides Two Points"This book is a great go-to if you're new to brioche knitting, but the patterns are unusual and pretty enough that even if you're comfortable with the basics already you'll want to check this book out. Once you start working with these cool techniques and patterns you just might be hooked, too." --Knitting.About.com"I have experience knitting basic brioche, but hadn't thought it was really possible to use the technique for anything other than scarves until this book." --Little Acorn Creations"I LOVE this book. First, it breaks brioche down into very simple steps--much like how I teach it. And second, it doesn't bombard you with unneeded information. Those who have taken my class can attest for my dislike of frivolous-information-bombardment." --Digital Nabi"First I feel the need to discuss just how easy this book makes brioche knitting. Brioche Chic taught me how to brioche knit in 20 minutes." --Unapologetic Knitter"This book will help you take the brioche stitch to the next level, where you cable brioche, make traveling stitches with brioche, knit two colors with brioche, and sometimes use those techniques together." --My Central Jersey's "In Stitches" Column
