Brioche knitting creates a soft surface, which at the same time is rigid, because all lines are moving in the same direction. When knitting the texture stripes in different colours, they are accentuated. You have the inner and the outer stripes. You have the top and the bottom stripes.
Two-colour brioche, in solid coloured yarns, underlines the rigidity. In this piece, one of the colours, the most distinct one, is worked holding two different yarns together. It makes the rigidity less distinct, but enhances the difference in height.
Another interesting thing about this piece is the contrast between the horisontal and the vertical lines.

Patentstrik giver en blød overflade, som samtidig er rigid og ensrettet, alle linjer går i én retning. Når teksturstriberne strikkes i hver sin farve, accentueres de. Der er de yderste striber og de inderste. Der er de øverste striber og de nederste.
Tofarvet patent, med ensfarvede garner, understreger rigiditeten, så ved at have et blandet garn som den ene farve, som den tydeligste farvemudres udtrykket og højdeforskellen mellem maskerne forstærkes.
Kontrasten mellem vandrette linjer og lodrette er altid interessant
