Brioche Stitch (flat knitting) ➰
This technique creates an amazingly soft and squishy fabric (here's where the name comes from). It's perfect for almost any handknitted project - from hats and scarves to sweaters.
You can spice it up alternating two different colors of yarn for RS and WS rows, which will create a pattern of vertical stripes.
This video shows how to knit yos and bk2tog - two of the basic brioche stitches. A tutorial for knitting in the round is coming later this week.
yos - yarn over, slip - bring yarn forward, slip 1 as if to purl, bring yarn over the right needle;
bk2tog - brioche knit 2 together - knit the stitch together with its paired yarn over.
Cast on an odd number of stitches.
R1 (WS, set up): sl1, (k1, yos)x until the last 2sts., k1, p1.
R2 (RS): sl1, (yos, bk2tog)x until the last 2sts., yos, k1.
R3 (WS): sl1, (bk2tog, yos)x until the last 2sts., bk2tog, p1.
