Making 2-Stitch Increases in One Row Using One Color
To maintain the integrity of the brioche stitch, increases should be worked in pairs of stitches – adding one “sl1yo” stitch and one “brk” stitch. Designate a column of knit stitches on the right side (public side) of the work for placement of the increase. This will be referred to as the marked stitch or marked column. On the row following an increase row, be sure to follow the brioche pattern carefully over the new stitches to maintain the pattern.
Two stitches spring out of the center of one stitch (the marked stitch) with this increase. In the marked stitch: work a brkyobrk as follows: brk1, yo (yarn forward under needle then over needle to back), then brk1 into same stitch. 2 sts inc’d.
brioche knit (brk)… yarnover (yo)… and a final brioche knit (brk) into the same stitch
These full-fashioned increases were made in the same column, 6 stitches in from side edges, and worked every 4 RS rows. The marked stitches were either the left or right fork of the increases made 4 rows earlier.
