Single Color Brioche Stitch
This week on Ask Me Monday, I show how to knit single color Brioche Stitch. This easy, textural stitch creates a squishy, cozy fabric, even out of lighter weight yarns.
Watch the episode, practice the technique by following the Swatch instructions below, then put your skills to work by casting on for a simple brioche project like the Brioche & Buttons cowl featured in the January YarnYAY! box. Have fun!

Pro Tip: The way that the Brioche Stitch sequence is written can be confusing. Although it looks like he instructions are asking you to slip a stitch, then bring the yarn forward to yarn-over, the opposite is actually correct. Begin with your yarn in front, slip one stitch, then complete the yarn-over.
