HOW TO TEST YOUR YARN
Like with any project prep, you’ll want to swatch your yarn to see how it behaves. When you swatch, make sure you get gauge when knitting brioche.
Check, too, for drape. When you pull on the swatch, does it spring back into place? Or does it just kind of stretch out and stay there? For brioche, we want a yarn that’s going to bounce right back. The goal is to make sure the brioche holds it shape no matter what.
