One of the things I hate to do is undo the provisional cast on in order to graft. So I spent some time trying out different methods to see just how required it is. For visible seams, it’s worth it, but for ones nobody will see, check out this trick instead!

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.
