Knit at Nite MKAL Tutorial: 2-Color Reversible Brioche Decreases


Since this tutorial is covering a few stitches at once, the layout will be a bit different from my normal tutorials but it should be very useful to you just the same. If anything is unclear, please send me an e-mail so I can walk you through the steps. Happy knitting!

Note: It's difficult to explain which part of the pattern each decrease fits into, but I've done my best to make it make sense. These rows/decreases match with the rows and order worked in the pattern exactly, I've just left out the ribbing stitches on either side and in between the decreases. You can take the tutorial instructions and match them almost word for word to your pattern.

 Quick Links to the Stitches:
