You've mastered the knit and the purl stitch. You've played with yarn-overs, you've even turned a few cables. What next?
How about a little brioche? And I'm not talking about the baked variety.
Brioche stitch is known by many names, including Shaker rib, English rib, Fisherman's rib, and Prime rib. It involves working slipped stitches and yarn-overs to create a double thickness of fabric with raised lines of ribbing. Nancy Marchant explores the many creative possibilities for this stitch in her new book, Knitting Brioche.
