Alternate to Brioche
Any suggestions on alternate pattern to Brioche? I don't like the way it looks with my yarn. Need something stretchy that will drape with worsted weight wool for a wrap and look nice with K1P1 rib (the lower part of the sleeves). I like the way double seed stitch looks, but am wondering if it will be too stiff.

The yarn is hand-dyed merino from 100purewool on eBay. It is so soft! From what I have heard it is similar to Malabrigo (but I have never felt Malabrigo in real life).
