In European books it is known as English Rib, while in American books it is called Shaker knitting or more modern name - Brioche.


The brioche family of stitches includes numerous stitch patterns, which have a common element of a slipped stitch with a paired yarnover. In this fundamentally different technique yarnover serves as a companion of the worked stitch. The function of the yarnover is to plump up the stitch. The result is a soft, fluffy, comfortable, and three-dimensional fabric.


The more recognized basic brioche rib alternates elevated columns of knit stitches with purl-like stitches that recede into the background. Each stitch variation has its own flavor and structure.

Faina Goberstein has a long-time love for brioche stitches. With this webinar, Faina will guide you through brioche stitches, show you simple variations of brioche, and how to decrease and increase in basic brioche rib. Bring yarn with you when you attend this webinar to make gauge swatches with Faina!


Once you have mastered basic brioche stitch, you can go on to adding a color for more interesting patterns. You also can combine brioche with other stitch patterns such as lace, texture, or cables. Because many brioche patterns are reversible, they are ideal for cowls, neck warmers, and scarves.
