I got a little obsessed with brioche knitting this fall. I’m not quite sure I’m over it; I really want to knit a brioche cowl (when by all accounts I should be over cowls, too, given how many I knit before Christmas).
This knitting technique involves working some stitches and slipping others on one side of the knitting and usually doing the opposite on the other side to make a squishy, warm, reversible fabric that looks really cool in a single color or in two colors.
If you want to learn more and see some different ways of using brioche stitch, check out the free brioche knitting ebook from Knitting Daily. (Free subscription signup required.) This book covers the basics and offers five free patterns for you to try (I seriously love that tank top, designed by Katy Ryan).
Have you tried brioche knitting? I’d love to know if you give it a go or what you think of it if you’ve tried it before.
