Beginning Brioche

What is brioche knitting?                                                   

Brioche knitting produces a lofty, ridged fabric that resembles knit 1, purl 1 rib. Pronounced columns of elongated knit stitches appear to float on the surface above purl troughs. Because it is reversible, brioche stitch is a good choice for scarves, shawls, and blankets.  Brioche knitting belongs to a family of stitches that rely on slipped stitches worked in conjunction with yarnovers.  

Knitting Level:  Adventurous Beginner (need to know the knit and purl stitch)
