Yvonne, well I'm a newbie,,,soooo..
maybe I overlooked something. I'll go home and look again. I do have a friend in her 80's who has knitted a lot and she's from England so maybe she's familar with that type stitch.

Thanks ever so much for your input, Yvonne and others!

Could be you do just insert the needle into only the row-below stitch just like in Amy's y-b video
Which video are you referring to? I didn't find it.

Laura, it's in the videos under "abbreviations explained."

By the way, my curiosity was killing me so I knit a little swatch of this double stitch. It's cool! It looks like thick, squishy ribbing but it really isn't ribbing; no stitches are purled.
Here's what I did:
Cast on.
Purl one row.
Next row: Slip first st (selvedge), K1, DS1, K1 DS1 aross the row, ending with K1

Continue as row 3.

Pretty soon you start seeing this neat pattern emerging, looks like ribbing, but is thicker. It looks the same on both sides.
One hint is that make sure you only DS in a stitch that was merely knit on the previous row, don't DS directly over a previous DS.

Try it and see what happens

By jove, I think you've got it!
Yvonne, I re-read my instructions. They are the same as yours. I had read the part about doing the foundation purl row in the Brioche section last night, but just didn't connect the two sets of instructions.


I had been trying to do it this way:
ds1, purl1

yuck. that won't work.

I'll do a test in the morning based on what you've described. My Nyquil is starting to kick in now - no telling what it would look like if I did it now!


Thanks for hanging in there with me, Yvonne!
:D

Good luck Laura! BTW, the video is called "k-b" in the abbreviations explained.

Yvonne, I do knit into both stitches, ultimately, in that video. Is this what you do? To knit just in the row below, you'd have to knit into the side or back of the stitch in the row below. Knitting into the core/center of it, also catches the yarn above it.

Sounds cool. I haven't used that stitch really, just for demonstration purposes.

Yes Amy, I do believe so. Inserting the needle this way actually does catch both stitches; at a point it looks like both stitches are being knit together.

Laura, you're smart not to mix NyQuil and knitting.

yes, that's it amy & Yvonne. Thanks very much. I guess there are many names for the same stitch.
