Learning Brioche!

I have been a knitter for over 25 years now and have tried several things but Brioche knitting was something that just did not interest me too much.  I think because many of the finished projects that came across my social networks were in color palettes that just did not appeal to me.  I also am not excited about knitting a 1x1 rib, which is what brioche looks like.  Also I have heard it is very difficult.  But I decided to give it a try and I think I am hooked!  

My first attempt was One Color Worked Flat.  After watching several youtube videos, I soon got into the rhythm and thought that maybe from now on, this is how I will be doing all 1x1 ribbing!  Not sure if that will happen but I thoroughly enjoyed it.    

Now on to Two Color Brioche in the Round!   That is a much different experience!  Again after watching several videos, I felt like I had it, or at least the beginning of it.  I tinked back countless times and ripped every out and started over three times but finally was able to complete a simple two color brioche cowl in the round!    

I think all the tinking back and restarting helped me understand how this stitch works.  I am now ready to make a couple more cowls then tackle a pattern where the columns of stitches make designs.  But for now, just cowls!  

Lastly, I thought I would share a video of how I knit brioche continental style.
