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 while knitting a simple headband. 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 DC, loosely cast on 72 sts using long tail cast on. Join to work in the round, then knit 1 round. Bring yarn to front and leave it hanging there. To cast on loosely, leave space between stitches as you place new stitches on needle. Alternatively, you could use a needle 2 sizes larger than your working needle.
50 yards DC (dark color), 40 yards LC (light color) heavy worsted weight yarn. I’ve used Malabrigo Worsted for my samples. 16" circular needle US 6 (4.25 mm). (No magic loop or dpns for first time brioche, please.) One stitch marker for beginning of round. Free pattern is here: https://pdxknitterati.com/patterns/petite-brioche/
