Brioche Stitch

The Brioche Knitting Stitch Pattern

About This Stitch Pattern

The Brioche Stitch is a thick, lofty, ribbed knitting stitch pattern. Its loose knit gives brioche fabric an enormous amount of stretch, and its unique constructions makes for a super soft end product. Made using an interlocking technique, knitting stitches from the previous row together with the current row, there’s truly nothing like the brioche stitch. It’s one of the most beautiful and simple looking knitting stitches out there.

Use the brioche stitch in scarves and cowls, or in a lovely ribbed hat.
