In this tutorial you will discover how to knit the brioche stitch also known as "English ribs". You have probably seen it in the latest models in vogue, especially in the designs of Stephen Westand Andrea Mowry.
To help you understand how to knit the two color brioche in the round, we have prepared this tutorial including three videos: the brioche knit in the round, the increases and decreases in brioche. The brioche stitch is a really nice knit to look at, touch and wear. Knitted in a two-tone version, it has ribs with reversible colors for a knit that can be worn on the right side as well as on the wrong side! The brioche stitch results in a soft knit, thicker and therefore warmer than an ordinary knit.
CIRCULAR KNITTED BRIOCHE, TWO COLOR VERSION
A brioche stitch (in the round) is knit in two steps: first knit a round in which the stitches are knit and slipped ... Then we go back a second time on the row (or round) to knit the slipped stitches and slip the knit stitches.
The FIRST ROUND is the starting round during which we start the brioche stitch. This is a first round knit with the main color (at the beginning of the video).
The SECOND ROUND is a turn around during which we integrate the second color (at 4:30 minutes)
The THIRD ROUND is the "regular brioche stitch" knitted with the main color (at 8:00 minutes)
The FOURTH ROUND is the "regular brioche stitch" knitted with contrasting color (at 10:46 minutes)
When you have completed the first and second rounds, simply repeat rounds 3 and 4 until the desired length is achieved.
Circular Brioche in summary
Now for a little fun here's how to increase in the brioche stitch
Since you know how to increase the stitch, here is how to decrease the stitch: decreases inclined to the left and decreases inclined to the right ...
I invite you now to practice to refine your knitting brioche technique. Once again, I know that you risk getting out of your "comfort zone" and the learning period can sometimes be tedious (and frustrating !!) but do not get discouraged: as it is by forging becomes a blacksmith, it is while listening to Biscotte that one knits a "brioche"
