Suggested Supplies

The single color brioche knit stitch can be paired with just about any fiber of yarn in your stash. Brioche knitting creates a pretty thick fabric so light and medium weight yarns are very practical options but you can certainly use any weight yarn for this stitch.

Supplies used in demonstration video:

  • Red Heart Scrubby Smoothie Yarn
  • US 10 Knitting Needle
  • Yarn Needle
  • Scissors
