Ask Me Monday: Single Color Brioche Stitch

 

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!

Single Color Brioche Stitch: Swatch it!

Special Stitches

Bring yarn forward, slip the next stitch purlwise, then bring the yarn over the needle to the back,

ready to work the next stitch.

Single Color Brioche Stitch Swatch

 

Directions:

CO 20 sts.

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.

 

Set Up Row: *Sl1yo, k1; rep from * to end.

Row 1: *Sl1yo, brk1; rep from * to end.

Rep Row 1 until you have a square.

Last Row: *P1, brk1; rep from * to end.

BO in rib stitch.

    Can you tell me the alternate patterns you suggested for this month’s yarn. Not sure I need a cowl. Thanks.
