Taking it up a notch, watch how to work a 1 to 5 brioche increase using brioche purl.
Now that you’ve mastered the brkfyof, let’s expand that increase to really grow your stitch count even more. The brkfyofyof is a 4 stitch increase.
What’s an increase without a decrease! The brioche knit 3 together (brk3tog) is demonstrated in today’s stitch tutorial. This stitch is the companion to the brkfyof from the last video in Autumn Come. To work the brk3tog, insert your needle into the next 3 brioche stitches (5 loops because of the 2 companion yo’s present) and knit them all together. It’s as simple as that 😊. Note: this brk3tog is working a sy1o, brk, s1yo together. In general brioche knitting, you can also work a brk, s1yo, brk together but will need to start with a yarn over to be set up for the next rnd of brioche.

Wearing Marquise Cut from a zoom call earlier in the day, camera mom said “are you sure you want to wear …
Isn’t it funny how some designs come about? Beach Bum falls into that “oops, but hey that works” category! Over the winter 2019, as I was planning designs for the 2020 Moebi Knits Pattern Club I knew I wanted to incorporate a moebius into a summer wardrobe. The concept idea featured a moebius where ‘double’ came into play with how you could wear it
Have you ever noticed how different colors take on different yarn bases? Both of these yarns from “The Unique Sheep” were dyed in their Spring Grass colorway. One of them is 100% organic cotton DK and the other is 50% organic cotton and 50% bamboo. Not just the sheen is different, but I was surprised to see a slight difference in some of the colors too.

It started last year when a knitter loved the dropped stitch motifs in Air Bender and I challenged myself to see if I could turn the abstract butterflies into real butterflies with the same techniques. Then…
I love to add Japanese glass seed beads to my hand knits. A friend mentioned she wanted to try, but was concerned about what happens when it’s washed.
Formerly, True Vineyard Ministries, this organization rebranded earlier this year to have their mission match their brand. After prayerfully considering the options of which mission to support, I decided to give Handspun Hope another year.
