Brioche knitting is the current “it knit” and you can do it, too! Brioche knitting is easier in the round than flat, and even easier with two colors rather than one. We’ll learn basic brioche rib, and then move on to the increases and decreases in my Brioche Pastiche Hat. We’ll also learn how to fix common mistakes in brioche knitting.
Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; working in the round; have knit a few accessories
With dark color, loosely cast on 72 (78) sts for 18” (19”) hat using long tail cast on. Join to work in the round, then K 1 round. Bring yarn to front and leave it hanging there.
