Welcome to the first video in our new Brioche knitting series! With the launch of Autumn Come, some of the testers said some of the stitches weren’t easy to find, so we’ll be covering all the increases and decreases used in the pattern over the next couple of weeks. The brkfyof – brioche knit into the front, yarn over, and front – creates a 2 stitch increase. It takes and entire brioche row/ rnd for this increase to be made. The first color makes the new stitches. The second color puts the new stitches into the brioche format.

Garment Philosophy

I begin each garment design with a philosophy for that particular design. The philosophy is what the garment wants to be and what, if anything, are “nonnegotiable” elements and what can be tweaked if needed. For instance, proportional design is an overarching philosophy I’ve always applied in my garment designs, even before hearing Jill mention it in her class. As seen in Woodsong Camber (pre-class), the philosophy of this design is that it featured differing sized traveling cables dependent upon the size being knit. Or in Moonlit Kiss, I originally had sketched in highly detailed sleeves, but in development found the lace and cowl details were enough elements for one design so streamlined those sleeves down to a simple faux seam to match the body.
