Photo Tutorial: Basic Brioche Stitches!


Step by Step 1/1 LslT RS (Left-slip-Twist) Knitting Tutorial

Hello!


This week I'm sharing the 3 basic techniques that differentiate Brioche Knitting from Non-Brioche Knitting. This tutorial assumes that you are mid-project and therefore are at the point of needing to work these specific stitches. 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 you have any questions, you can always send me an e-mail.


Have fun & happy knitting!

Brioche Knit (Brk) Tutorial


Step 1:

The next stitch to be worked (in grey) has a yarn over (in blue) wrapped over top of it. Consider both strands of yarn to be a single stitch that you will work into.




Step 2:

Inserting the needle from front to back through both the stitch and it's yarn over, knit both the yarn over and the stitch together.





Step 3:

As you can see, the yarn over that was wrapped over the stitch is now laying on top of the stitch you just worked and you are ready for your next stitch.

Slip 1, Yarn Over (Sl1yo) Tutorial




Step 1:

The next stitch to be worked (in blue) has no yarn over wrapped over top of it. Bring your working yarn from back to front between the needles.




Step 2:

Slip next stitch purlwise, bring the yarn to the back by bringing it over the stitch that was just slipped. The slipped stitch should look like it’s hiding under the yarn over.


That's it!

Now you've got the basics of Brioche Knitting available to you and you can start making some squishy magic!
