Brioche Rib Decrease

Brioche Rib Decrease | How to work the BRK3tog decrease

This week on Ask Me Monday, we go a step past working straight rounds in Brioche Rib by upping the skill ante with a Brioche Rib decrease. The BRK3tog decrease is a creat option for decretive colorwork options ass you become a more advanced briocher (<— let’s pretend that’s a word), but is a great, simple option for crown shaping when making a beanie in this stitch pattern. Watch the video tutorial, try out your new skill, then consider making my September Skull cap, exclusively launched in the September YarnYAY! box (see deets below.) Enjoy!
