Earlier this week, we learned how to knit two color brioche rib flat, so now it’s time to tackle brioche increasing and decreasing. There are not one, but TWO easy video tutorials to follow in this post!
Learn how to knit two color brioche rib flat to add vertical colorwork to your knitting.
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.
Turns out, brioche knitting is actually totally easy, and you can knit a basic brioche project even if you’re only capable of knitting, yarn over, and knit 2 together. You don’t even have to know how to purl, people! (The level to which I facepalmed upon this realization was remarkable.)
There were some really fun and inspiring ideas on the knit and crochet blogs this week (I know, I always say that, but it’s true!). In particular some DIY rainbow stitch markers and rainbow shoelaces were big standouts for me! I love the idea of crocheting shoe laces, and the ones I’m sharing today are a DIY designed to help fight homophobia in soccer – how great is that?! And, hello, any stitch marker DIY will have my attention.
