Brioche Stitch

Brioche Stitch 1, originally uploaded by expknitter.

A Treasury of Knitting Patterns, page 45
Yarn: Plymouth Galway 100% wool, worsted weight
Needles: US size 8 (5 mm)
Gauge: about 3 1/2 sts/in, slightly stretched
Comments: 1) A very stretchy, reversible rib pattern, suitable for hats, scarves; 2) Do the yo’s as Elizabeth Zimmermann suggests in “Kniiting Without Tears” (creating a sloppy diagonal loop, as she calls it) rather than the usual yo before a k st, else the rib pattern won’t form properly.
