Brioche stitch
I am knitting a sweater which has a two toned brioche collar knitted in the round. I have instructions for the stitch but I would like to view a tutorial using the continental method of knitting. All tutorial I have found do not use this method and for me they are just to busy. There are too many things going on at the same time.

Hi. Welcome to Knitting Help.

Check this link. http://www.google.com/search?q=conti...hannel=suggest I googled continental knitting brioche stitch and it looks like you might find something useful there.

I did check the link out, but none of the choices really applied to me. One was showing how to knit the brioche stitch with 2 colors but it was a flat piece and no sound! One showed how to do it in the round but only with one color and again no sound. The rest of them did not use the continental method of knitting.

Why is it difficult for you to follow a video that isn't continental? The stitches are formed the same way, no matter which hand holds the yarn.

Maybe if you could link to your pattern it would be easier to help you. I'm not really familiar with brioche stitch, never mind doing it with two colors, but other knitters here would certainly be able to help.

I knit continental but usually find videos done English style helpful.

I don't think there is a video for that specific method and stitch. I looked a bit, too.

There are directions for the two-color brioche in the round on this site which is part of the home for all thinks brioche. Alas, they're not big on videos but the directions are clear and may help. Perhaps in combination with the video that GG linked to?

I found one. Just typed in "Two toned Brioche stitch in the round continental method" and on youtube was a very good video showing the method. Thank you all for your responses. By the way, if you are using the continental method the American method does confuse things quite a bit, because you move the yarn all over the place, unlike the continental it just stays in place.
