Right-Slanting and Left-Slanting Decreases in Brioche Stitch

Right-Slanting and Left-Slanting Decreases in Brioche Stitch

Brioche stitch is an easy way to create a beautiful lush texture. If you’ve never tried to knit brioche, this tutorial will get you started, and this one will explain how to work brioche stitch in the round.

This stitch pattern is great for scarves and shawls, but when we want to use brioche to make a shaped garment, or when we want to knit one of those gorgeous brioche patterns we admire on Pinterest, we have to know how to decrease stitches without disrupting brioche pattern.

Because classic brioche stitch is based on 1×1 ribbing, the only way to keep the pattern consistent is to decrease two stitches at a time.

This tutorial explains how we can do it to form right-slanting and left-slanting decreases.

These decreases are perfect for forming decorative lines that highlight the shaping of a garment. Now you can confidently use brioche stitch pattern to make cosy sweaters, cardigans, shawls and hats.
