Squishy Brioche stitches are perfect for fingerless mittens!

These Mitts are a great project to learn - Brioche knitting with two colors and work in flat. Before you challenge yourself with a big Brioche shawl, why don’t you practice with these cute quick projects? It is so much fun to create interesting patterns with Brioche decreasing and increasing.

YARN
Yardage above is a total of two colors.

  • Color A (K stitch on RS) - 70 yards

The instruction is for one size, so please choose the yarn for your size.

Brioche stitches are very stretchy and forgiving.

NEEDLES
US #3
You need 1~2 size smaller needles for Brioche knitting.
Since you need to work twice in the same row, you need to use either circular needles or long DPN.
