Learn the Brioche Stitch
Create lofty, textured fabric using Brioche Stitch, which resembles ribbing but with much more depth and many more possibilities. We'll knit a swatch (or start a scarf) in basic Brioche Stitch and start a cowl in two-color Brioche for a richly textured and reversible fabric. With Kira.
