Materials Needed:  32” US size 6 circular needle, 2 contrasting DK weight yarn (100 grams each) such as Schoppel’s Edition 3 along with a solid color, stitch marker

 

Brioche knitting creates a cushy reversible ribbed fabric that resembles a knit 1, purl 1 rib.  This happens by working one stitch and slipping the next stitch. On one row, a stitch is slipped, and at the same time, the yarn is carried over the needle to create a yarnover. On the next row, the slipped stitch and its adjacent yarnover are worked together.  Stop in and see our sample cowl.

Because it is reversible, brioche stitch is a good choice for scarves, shawls, and blankets.

 

Small amount of homework – Cast on 160 stitches, place marker and join to work in the round (being careful not to twist your work).  Knit 6 rounds.
