From graphic stripes to more complicated double knitting, hats are the perfect canvas to practice and learn new skills. They're pretty small, so you aren't committing to a lifetime of knitting a technique you may not love, and except for some crown shaping, they're basically just knitting a tube — by keeping the structure simple, you're free to focus on your new skill. So when you're in the market to try something new, check out one of these skill-building hats.
Two color-brioche knitting gets a lot of love, but one-color brioche can be just as satisfying. Take this brioche ribbed scarf — pure, squishy, scarf heaven. If you've never tried brioche knitting before, this is a great way to get a feel for it.
Brioche is a different animal than other knitting, and a good brioche project always starts with a yarn that complements those beautiful, squishy brioche stitches.
Brioche knitting is a totally different animal than, say, regular flat knitting or even in-the-round knitting. When you're new to brioche, especially two-color brioche, things can get really confusing.
Brioche is a rebel — it follows different rules than most other knitting techniques. When you try brioche knitting for the first time, you might have to throw some of your usual knitting know-how out the window temporarily to adjust to this beautiful, textured technique.
