Leah used four skeins of Fibre Company Terra in Hollyhock; you’ll need approximately 400 yds of worsted weight yarn.
US size 8 needles or correct needles for gauge
tapestry needle for weaving in the ends
6-inches x 55-inches
4 stitches = inch in Brioche Stitch
The last stitch of each row is slipped in order to create a neat edge.
CO 30 stitches.
Row 1: K2, yo, sl1, K1, repeat from to last two stitches, K1, sl1.
Row 2: K2, yo, sl1, K2tog, repeat from to last two stitches, K1, sl1. When you K2tog, you are knitting the preceding slipped stitch (sl1) together with the yarn over (yo) of the previous row.
Row 3 and all following rows: repeat Row 2.
Continue in pattern until you have reached the desired length.
Bind-off Row (very loosely!): Sl1, K1, psso P1, K2tog, pass purled stitch over decreased stitch, repeat from to last two stitches, bind off normally.
Weave in ends and block lightly by hand to even the stitches and enhance the supple rib of Brioche Stitch.
