What is Brioche Knitting? Apparently the earliest Brioche patterns were written in the mid-1800s England for cushions and footstools that very much resembled the puffs of brioche pastry most of us are familiar with. The cushions used the brioche stitch that we still use today; however, throughout time we’ve experimented with our knitting to be able to make more than just pillows and cushions with the stitch.
So let's get experimenting , starting with the Simple Brioche Headband free pattern in the list below. You'll need to familirise yourself with 2 new knitting abbreviations SL1YO and BRK before you start. Once you've mastered the headband, why not knit a matching scarf.
