Lindsay’s Invisible Short Rows

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 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.

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.
