Saturday Stitch: Stockinette Brioche


Every Saturday I will share with you a new stitch.
Today's stitch is: Stockinette Brioche.

The Stockinette Brioche Stitch is another easy and fast reversible stitch, perfect for beginners. The only thing you need to have in mind is that as with any brioche stitch, the fabric will use a bit more yarn than usual.Stockinette Brioche Stitch makes a fluffy, squishy, adaptable pattern that's fun to knit and even more fun to play with. It's great for scarves, afghans or even as ribbing on a sweater. You need a stitch number multiple of 2 + 1 + 2 edge stitches. Repeat the pattern between the * as many times as you like.



Instructions :


Row 1 (foundation): edge st, * sl1pw with 1 yo, k1; repeat from * to last 2 sts, sl1pw with 1 yo, edge st
Row 2: edge st, k2tog (1 st + yo), * sl1pw with 1 yo, k2tog (1 st + yo); repeat from * to last st, edge st
Row 3: edge st, * sl1pw with 1 yo, k2tog (1 st + yo); repeat from * to last 2 sts, sl1pw with 1 yo, edge st
Row 4: same as row 2
Repeat rows 3 through 4.
sl1pw - slip 1 purl wise.
yo - yarn over
Difficulty level: Easy
