Hello, I just signed up to this forum because I love the videos that have been so helpful to me in accomplishing my goal in teaching myself to knit. I learned how to do it from the videos! Yeah! Go Me!!!
Now I have found something that I truly want to do. I have watched several videos that are not from this website but I just can't get it. I'm hoping somebody here can help. I like "words" to go along with pictures.
So, brioche stitch, two colors. What I am really trying to accomplish is to make a 2x2 ribbed scarf where the purls and knits are different colors. So the ribs are one color and the valleys are another and when you reverse the scarf it is the same beautiful pattern on both sides. I found this video on brioche knitting that did exactly that! However, I cannot for the life of me seem to be able to figure out how to get it right.
Starting from the cast on it seems simple, like every other cast on. However, I started my cast on with two colors which was apparently a total waste of time, but .. I did learn how to do it!
The two videos I have been watching over and over show the brioche being done on either DPN's or in the round. I wonder if this is the ony way to do the brioche stitch?
So, I want two colors to make a scarf in brioche stitch. Pretty simple. OR.... just a basic 2x2 rib with the ribs one color and the valleys the other... when I tried to do my knits black and my purls grey, I got the two colors but not quite right.. one side was grey and one side was black.. instead of the contrast I saw in the brioche stitch..
OK.. that was a whole lot I know for a first time.. but any suggestions are welcomed.
Hugs and thanks
