Brioche

Brioche is a stitch I’ve been meaning to learn for a while now. Brioche creates a lofty, warm and reversible fabric, and it seems like it is everywhere this year!

I especially like the way two-color brioche looks with one color acting as a backdrop to the raised rows of the main color like it does here in Stephen West’s Askews Me Dickey knit with Woolfolk’s super soft Får.

While it looks beautiful in neutrals I also like how two-color brioche can highlight subtle (or not so subtle) color changes in hand-dyed yarns as this Ravelry user's scarf project does.

While I’ve found lots of inspiration to learn this stitch, I hadn’t found the time to sit down and teach myself. When one of Olga’s upcoming workshops at Knit Purl turned out to be on brioche, I had to enroll! I’m looking forward to learning from such a dynamic designer and being able to add another fun stitch to my knitter’s bag of tricks.
