The Joy of Knitting wouldn’t be complete without some brioche! After some deep dives into the process (cough Autumn Come and Terran), I was ready for a vacation level pattern. Introducing Color Cascade – an easy brioche asymmetrical shawl perfect for summer knitting. One of my favorite features is that the edging is worked contiguously! It has to have a little something, something, right 😉. But this edging holds a secret, it saves you from having to pin down your unused color!!! To help you “read” your stitches and get comfortable with the technique, I’ve filmed the first few lines of the set up.

Stashing down for the move to Maine, I came across this beautiful skein of 100% cobweb weight linen yarn from a discontinued yarn company. It has been in my stash for years! And over the years I’ve tried to make several different design concepts from it. But nothing really stuck.
Have you seen my Instagram feed lately? I’ve started a “WIP Wednesday” series of mini stitch tutorials. Approximately 90 seconds or less of one of the fun stitches that’s currently on my needles! Since these will show up in (future) patterns, this blog post is a place you can find the list of mini-tuts. Check back frequently!

One of the things I love most about brioche knitting is the reversible nature of the stitch. When it came to short rows, though, the techniques I could find all “displayed” the short rows in varying degrees of glaring announcements “there is a short row here!” I knew they had to be a way to make it completely invisible.
The brioche slip, slip, slip & knit the 3 brioche slipped stitches together (brsssk) is demonstrated in today’s stitch tutorial.
How do you work your brioche knitting? I was a one color at a time gal, but then I wondered, could it be done simultaneously? The answer is yes!
The final video in the Autumn Come set is the brssp3togpsso. This is the one that inspired that whole series as a tester said she found the others on you tube, but not this one. The brssp3togpsso is a brioche purl decrease – brioche slip, slip, purl 3 brioche sts together, and pass the slipped brioche sts over the st just created. Wow, that’s a mouthful! It’s a good thing it’s easier to do than to say 😉. The main question is when do you bring your yarn to front for the purling? Both ways work, but my personal preference is to slip first and then bring the yarn to front. Bringing the yarn to front prior to the slipping …
After increasing last week, this week we examine the final set in this series for Autumn Come – 5 to 1 brioche st decreases. First up, brssk3togpsso – brioche slip, slip, knit 3 brioche sts together, and pass slipped brioche sts over the st just created. Since this is worked as a brk base, the st will already be in “brioche format” for the next pass on your CC rnd.
Taking it up a notch, watch how to work a 1 to 5 brioche increase using brioche purl.
