Advice about brioche stitch: practice on scrap yarn if you have never done brioche before, it will save you a lot of ripping out on your project and if you drop a stitch in brioche, immediately go to YOU TUBE, it will save you a lot of frustration and time!
Lost track of how many times I ripped out the first section of brioche.
I let my stubborn nature get in the way. I really wanted to figure out how to pick up a dropped brioche stitch, but failed in all my attempts. I finally went to you tube and am now kicking my behind repeatedly! ! ! It is soooo easy to fix a dropped brioche stitch.
I found the pattern a bit difficult to follow. There was at least one error and the instructions for the brioche section were confusing. I had better luck figuring out the increases, especially for the center increases, on YOU TUBE.
Here is the finished object!
The nice thing about brioche is that it is reversible. Yarn is Madelinetosh Tosh Light, colors soot and void. The pattern is Marfa by, This.Bird.Knits. Pattern notes are on Ravelry username, frazzldknitter. I also see more brioche knitting in my future.
My first brioche project complete and I believe there will be more brioche in my future.
I certainly have challenged my knitting skills this year with new stitches and jumping outside the circle! Looking at some of my planned projects for this year and the challenge will continue.
HAPPY KNITTING AND BLOGGING.
