I'll try Google. Thanks!
Actually, what I described is called a half Fisherman's rib or Shaker rib, and it's made a little differently than Brioche. I find it easier to do instead of slipping, yo and k2tog, though it results in the same look. They're all variations and as I said, they look the same though they're made differently

For Pattern stitch sites, try these....
