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 …

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.

Stitch in Focus kfyof

Today’s “Stitch in Focus” is kfyof – knit into front, yarn over, front. Being a recent bulky weight yarn convert, I realized that my old faithful 2 stitch increase method, kfbf, was noticeably off kilter when knit with bulky weight yarn. This just wouldn’t do! So for the Snow Gazer patterns (and future 2018 heavier weight yarn new releases… hint, hint), I switched to kfyof (and the corresponding purl version – pfyof).
