Plain Brioche Stitch, Purl Version—Even Number of Stitches Loosely cast on an even number of stitches. SET-UP ROW: wyif, *sl1yof, p1; rep from *. ROW 1: wyif, *sl1yof, brp1; rep from *. Rep Rows 1 only. The method of working the stitch is different but the end result is the same. I personally find that I work the brioche stitch much faster and much more evenly than Fisherman’s Rib. Abbreviations k1b = knit one below Knit stitch in row below, slipping the top stitch off the left-hand needle without working it; it remains hanging over the worked stitch.
If you choose this method, it is important to note that you will then need to correct the mount of the stitch to be slipped in the following row. These visuals show how to work a yf sl1yo (yarn forward, slip 1, yarn over) followed by a brk1 (bark 1) while holding the yarn with your right hand, but this method would work just as well for left-hand yarn holders. 1 Yarn forward under the needle (yf), then slip 1 purlwise, coming from behind to correct the yarn’s mount (sl1). 2 Bring the yarn over the needle to the back (yo) and knit the following stitch together with its yarn over (brk).
Note that the edges don’t match but lay nicely. It is best to use a selvedge stitch when working an odd number of stitches. If you have a personal selvedge stitch preference, keep in mind that brioche knitting has a much different gauge than normal knitting—fewer stitches and more actual rows. Shown are some suggested selvedges to use when working an odd number of brioche stitches. This is one of my favorite selvedges. Loosely cast on an odd number of stitches. SET-UP ROW: sl1pwise wyib (1 st selv), *yf sl1yo, k1; rep from *, end with yf sl1yo, k1 (1 st selv).
