What is Brioche knitting, anyway?
Brioche knitting is a way of using knits, purls, slipped stitches, and yarnovers to create a stretchy, ribbing-like fabric. The columns are pronounced and, even when using two colors, the project is reversible. Each side shows one of the colors more dominantly.
Brioche knitting can be used to create any kind of project or garment,
including hats, scarves, shawls, and sweaters. You can increase,
decrease, and make cable-like designs with colorful curves and swirls.
Amazing Projects You Can Make With Brioche
What Are Some of the Challenges Involved in Learning Brioche?
Brioche knitting uses new abbreviations, invented by Nancy Marchant, along with standard abbreviations, to denote how to create the Brioche stitch.
While you can learn to read your work and know what to do on the different rows without having to follow the abbreviations, you’ll still
need to understand how to read them in order to follow patterns.
The abbreviations include brk (pronounced “bark”), which I re-write as “br-k” (think “Brioche knit”) and brp (pronouned “burp”), which I re-write as “br-p” (think “Brioche purl”). Brioche knitting also includes the standard abbreviations sl1wyib (slip one with yarn in back) and sl1wyif (slip one with yarn in front), as well as using the k2tog (knit two together) and p2tog (purl two together) movements to create the Brioche knit and purl stitches.
But don’t let this scare you off! Brioche knitting is easier than you think.Below I’ll outline a four-step method that you can use to easily learn and get comfortable with Brioche knitting.
