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. If working a brk3tog on a brk, s1yo, brk, there will be …
Stitches bound off, ends woven in, out of the washed and blocked cycle, and I sat staring at my completed Offshoot contemplating what to do. I wore it, I tossed it about, I questioned the yarn and it kept saying “not done.”
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.

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.
What a full year 2019 has been… from freelancing to pattern publishing and working on a secret non-knitting project! In 2019, we published 10 designs, bringing our total to the big 100!
One of our assignments was to create your own sizing chart. If you look online at different ready-to-wear shops, you’ll see they all have their own custom sizing chart. What hips circumference make up a Large pants? What bust makes an XS top?
What happens when you take a children’s author with a degree in Philosophy and turn her into a knitwear pattern designer? You get a passionate designer with a HUGE learning curve to undertake!
I’m absolutely ecstatic, 100 releases, I never thought my design career would be so plentifully blessed with creative designs as to reach 100, but God has given me so many fiber-y visions, today we celebrate that milestone and look forward to even more to come.
