Pattern Notes

This pattern is worked flat in one piece. In brioche knitting, two rows are worked for each counted row that appears on the face of the fabric. Half of the stitches are worked in one row, and the other half (the stitches that were slipped in the previous row) are worked in the following row. Stitches should be slipped purlwise. The brioche stitch with its yarn over counts as one stitch.

The increases and decreases have a distorting effect on the fabric and gauge will not be consistent across the pattern
