A couple months ago I shared a pattern for an awesomely fluffy cowl in brioche stitch, which a lot of you lovely knitters out there have made (and even adapted!) for yourselves. One thing I didn’t think to write about in that post was how to tear back and fix a brioche project if you make a mistake. Luckily one of your fellow readers reached out on Facebook to ask if I’d make a video on just that. Today’s new video shows how to wrangle all of the yarn-overs and slipped stitches when you’re ripping back to get rid of a misworked stitch in brioche.
I’ll admit, fixing brioche is a little scarier than ripping out and rethreading loops of vanilla knit and purl stitches. The key is knowing where you’re picking up the X of a yarn over as well as a knit stitch and where you’re just picking up a purl loop by itself. Check out the video below for a nice and slow visual explanation on how to successfully redo mixed up brioche without having to tear out all of your work and start over. Hint: slow and steady wins the race! :)
