Here's my result, the edges got a little misshapen due to the towel in my banneton, and the parchment paper in the dutch oven, I was trying to follow the directions as close to the letter as possible for my first attempt. 

I didn't get consistently giant holes like everyone else seems to, but that's ok, the bread tastes great, and I now can use it for grilled cheese sandwiches without worrying about setting off the damn smoke detector.

I got the idea from King Arthur Flour's website. http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/shortcut-russenzopf-recipe. I used the brioche recipe from Rose Levy Beranbaum's The Bread Bible.
