Difficult Techniques:  Somewhat challenging to knit into front and back of two stitches at once.

Comments: Lays flat. Stitch count changes on row 3 so counting stitches on (or immediately after) this row could lead to confusion.  I originally knit this using Cascade 220 but I didn’t think it looked very good.  I’ve added photos of that swatch to my flicker account.  If you’re interested you can see them here.

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.
