These three stitches are the building blocks of Brioche.
Much like the knit and purl are to your usual knitting, sl1yo, brk and brp are the building blocks of all Brioche projects. If you can master these three stitches, you’ll be ready for practically anything.
Slip 1 Yarn Over - This isn’t your typical SL1YO that you’d see in a lace pattern.
Hold the working yarn in front.
Slip the next stitch purlwise.
As you’re slipping the stitch from the left needle to the right needle, wrap the yarn over the needle and to the back.
Brioche Knit - This stitch is kind of like a k2tog, and it’s super easy!
make sure working yarn is to the back of the work.
Insert the needle knitwise into the next stitch and the yarn over, as if to knit.
Knit the stitch and yarn over together.
This stitch is very similar to a p2tog.
Bring the working yarn to the front of the work. If your previous stitch is a sl1yo, make sure the yarn over stays in place.
Insert the needle purlwise into the next stitch and the yarn over, as if to purl.
Purl the stitch and yarn over together as one stitch.
