Brioche stitch creates a beautiful and lofty fabric. And knitting in this chunky yarn is sp satisfying since it knits up quickly, not to mention, it is much easier to fix mistakes! If you are new to brioche, this is a good way to get your feet wet before diving into a bigger project.

Since the earliest brioche patterns became popularized in the Netherlands, modern day instructions are typically written for continental knitters. As such, standard brioche patterns can be a little confusing for English-style knitters. So, to help our fellow “throwers”, we provided a break down of instructions for English knitters on page 3.
